This bundle includes my complete 2 1/2 week unit for RL 4.9. This is used to teach students to compare and contrast major events which lead to similar themes in traditional literature from different cultures.
1. Implementation Overview of Unit
2. Daily Mini Lessons
2. Links to all Paired Texts, including
a. "Mr. Lucky Straw" (Japanese folktale)
b. "Legend of the Blue Bonnet" (Native American folktale)
c. "Mufaro's Beautiful Daughters" (African folktale)
d. "Rough-Faced Girl" (Native American folktale)
3. Graphic Organizers
4. Plot Diagrams
5. Activities for Text Interaction
6. Answer Keys
It also comes with organizers to teach prerequisite skills for this standard, including:
*analyzing characters (RL 4.3)
*identifying theme (RL 4.2) with evidence (RL 4.1)
*plotting events that lead to theme (RL 4.2)
*comparing two texts' events that share similar themes
These resources are fantastic for instruction in small groups and/or to be used to modify your instruction as needed for special education students.
Finally, you will be getting a RL 4.9 formative, with access to both texts necessary and the answer key.
