This 4-lesson unit includes a Lesson Plan and 4 lessons: the complete Multicultural Cinderella lesson, the complete Multicultural Folktales lesson, and 2 additional lessons: an introduction to the student project, and a follow-up lesson for the day of project presentations.
We All Have a Story to Tell introduces a student folktales project by the oral telling of a folktale using an example of one of the choices students will have for presenting the project. Lesson includes PPT and handout with project guidelines and single-point rubric.
Long or Short, Stories Are Basically the Same is a PPT lesson offering a unique perspective on how the different types of folktales transitioned into the different kinds of fiction books.
Intended for 6th grade ELA collaboration, this unit covers a 4-6 week period of time and is completely aligned to a typical middle school ELA folktales curriculum unit.
