This is one week's worth of in-depth lesson planning around Adeline Yen Mah's Chinese Cinderella. These lesson plans focus primarily on symbolism, while delving into the theme of limited mobility and its connection with disfigured and shrunken feet. 10th Grade ELA Common Core standards are addressed in ways that promote critical thinking and text-to-life meaning. Vocabulary development and investigative analysis into characterization, author's purpose, themes, and symbolism are all featured in these lesson plans.
This bundle deal includes heaps of original activities, quizzes, tests, reviews, and projects that students will remember for a lifetime. Text-to-world connections are at the forefront of these meaningful, truly educational, life-long lessons. Overall, these plans are a small taste of the complete recipe that resulted in remarkable improvement in my class throughout the year, and I encourage others to explore the ideas found in them for the sake of helping our students to become the best people possible for our future.
