The Fable or Folktale Understanding and Depth Guide is a graphic organizer that will allow students in grades 3-6 to analyze a Fable or Folktale selection to the depth and rigor of the STAAR in Texas. The guide allows students to :
Identify a hero and a Villain
Comprehend the story structure (Somebody, Wanted, But, So, Then)
Describe an event that advances or foreshadows the plot
Infer common themes and lesson learned with supporting evidence
Infer character traits about the hero and villain
This guide works well with a literary selection that has a hero and a moral, or theme. To use, pair this guide with a literary story or passage. Have students read the selection and then complete this guide. Then, students should complete any questions with the selection.
If you are looking for more depth than just practice questions before the STAAR, this is great for test prep.
