A zip file which contains an in-depth look into the short story 'Butterflies'. These two worksheets will take the class through roughly three lessons' worth of work. (Not including time to read the short story initially).
The worksheets are as follow:
1. Butterflies and Colonial New Zealand
A visually-based work sheet which allows students to work both collaboratively and independently to explore some of the wider issues between Maori and Pakeha perspectives. There are two sets of questions for differentiation.
2. 'Butterflies' - A social and cultural metaphor?
In groups of four students work collaboratively to explore the idea of the extent inequality exists in New Zealand by using both a series of readings and their copies of the short story. This task also includes work with a PMI chart and a comparision grid as well as building vocabulary. Some parts are individual, some parts are collaborative, either way this worksheet will give scope to differentiation.
