This lesson is a FREE sample lesson from the unit Folktales, Fairytales, and Fables, Oh My! written by Trina R. Dralus. (http://www.teacherspayteachers.com/Product/Common-Core-Folktales-Fairytales-Fables-Oh-My-Unit-of-Study-410535)
This lesson reflects Standard 6 Point of View, which asks readers to compare and contrast two or more versions of the same story by different authors or from different cultures. This lesson also reflects Standard 10, which deals with text complexity.
This lesson reflects the shift in the Common Core that asks readers to spend more time analyzing and taking a closer look at text. This lesson should occur after both stories have been read and discussed prior to this lesson. This lesson reflects the read closely aspect of the Common Core. If you are looking for more work in this standard and more work with a focus on the genres of fairytales, folktales, and fables then visit my link above for the full unit. I also have collected various ideas from teachers and people all over the internet and have posted these ideas to my Folktales... Pinterest Board. Please feel free to stop by and check it out!
Another shift in the Common Core involves text complexity. This shift is represented in Anchor 10: Read and comprehend complex literary and informational texts independently and proficiently. Fables, folktales, and fairytales are specifically recommended in the Common Core. The complexity of this type of literature allows the reader to think deeply about the meaning of the words and allows the reader the opportunity to think beyond the words. This shift is also included in this unit of study.
This lesson and charts are part of my Folktales, Fairytales, and Fables, Oh My! Unit. So if you own this unit, you already have these anchor charts.
*A bonus Essential Questions sheets is attached, as well as a formative assessment on point of view. I hope this helps you teach point of view.
