Product Description
With the activities included in this engaging, interactive, and standards-packed unit, students have an opportunity to study multicultural literature from a historical perspective. They will learn how the historical time period and place in which a piece was written heavily influences its contents, characters, and message.


Contents:

- Lesson Plans for the Unit

- A Before Reading Web Quest Activity where students research 19th Century Western Europe to prepare for Grimm's Cinderella

- A During Reading Activity that prompts students to note the different or surprising aspects of Grimm’s Cinderella

- An After Reading Activity that requires students to make connections between the different/unique story elements and the historical research that they conducted on the time period.

- A second After Reading Activity that asks students to compare/contrast Grimm’s Cinderella to clips from Disney’s cinematic rendition of the tale

- TWO completely outlined research project options with Rubrics included

- Detailed Answer Keys

I find that my students get excited to read and analyze the “Cinderella” tales. They have background knowledge and fond memories associated with the storyline they have grown up reading/watching. Therefore, they seem to invest more in the activities associated with these lessons and have a lot to say about the weird/strange contents included in the other cultural versions of the fairytale. I hope you and your students enjoy!
