Incorporate many literature standards into your instruction easily with this multicultural Cinderella unit!
This is one of my students’ favorite units. They love learning about different cultures through the Cinderella stories. It is a great way for me to incorporate many of the literary standards we have covered in the year. This unit is aligned to fourth grade content, but it can be adapted to fit the needs for any intermediate classroom.
In this unit, I have included lesson plans for ten days of instruction, graphic organizers, vocabulary words, standards-based written response questions, rubrics, and standards-based formative assessments. I have also included book suggestions, but this unit can be used with any multicultural Cinderella stories you already have in your classroom. This unit most closely addresses standards RL.4.2, RL.4.3, RL.4.6, and RL.4.9. Theme, summary, character traits, plot, point of view, and comparing the treatment of similar themes are the main skills covered. Other standards can be included with these books as well.
I hope that this unit meets your needs and helps your students master the skills included. Please leave feedback so I can continue to improve my products.
