Activity Overview


Themes, symbols, and motifs come alive when you use a storyboard. In this activity, students will identify a theme of “Casey at the Bat” and support it with evidence from the text.


One theme is “admiration”. Three examples for this theme are:

  • The crowd wishes that Casey were up next at bat.

    The text states, "They thought, 'If only Casey could but get a whack at that-"

  • The crowd roars when Casey goes up to bat.

    The text states, "For Casey, mighty Casey, was advancing to the bat."

  • Casey silences the crowd by raising his hand.

    The text states, "And it's likely they'd have killed him had not Casey raised his hand.”
