This presentation is the third in the MENA literature and poetry unit. This presentation focuses on folklore. Topics include fables, folktales, fairy tales, tall tales, myths, and legends. Students will focus on the Cinderella story in its many variations; they will read and compare "Rhodopis: The Girl with the Rose Red Slippers" and Perrault's version of "Cinderella." Then, students are introduced to "Cinderella" by Anne Sexton; topics include confessional poetry, rhetorical and literary devices, purpose, tone, and themes.
I will be uploading handouts to use with this presentation.
