Tall Tale Compare and Contrast Unitt:
For this unit, you can use a variety of books and sources for your Tall Tales. It is a great opportunity to differentiate for different leveled readers because there are so many versions of each classic tall tale available.

The stories can be read as close reading, whole group, in partners or independently (I like a combination). The “Tall Tale Round Up” page can be used as a tool to keep track of the details of each story after they are read. Suggestion: do the first as a whole group close read to model using the Tall Tale Round Up page. This unit may take a few weeks of literature study. After all the Tall Tales have been analyzed, the students can write their own original Tall Tales synthesizing the common elements of Tall Tales with their own creative ideas. They should follow the writing process for this: planning, drafting, editing, revising, publishing and illustrating. A writing plan sheet “Let’s Brainstorm” and writing rubric are included.
This unit is very fun for the students and very efficient in teaching many standards. The main targeted standards are listed on the next page. One could easily expand to include theme, point of view and other standards as well.
Log in to see state-specific standards (only available in the US).
Demonstrate understanding of figurative language, word relationships, and nuances in word meanings.
With some guidance and support from adults, use technology, including the Internet, to produce and publish writing as well as to interact and collaborate with others; demonstrate sufficient command of keyboarding skills to type a minimum of two pages in a single sitting.
With guidance and support from peers and adults, develop and strengthen writing as needed by planning, revising, editing, rewriting, or trying a new approach.
Produce clear and coherent writing in which the development and organization are appropriate to task, purpose, and audience.
