Student Release Forms!
Standard Focus: This week, we will focus on RL 4.9 Compare and contrast treatment of similar themes (good vs. evil) and patterns of events in stories from different cultures.
To address this standard, we will be reading different versions of Cinderella from different cultures. We will be reading:
Cinderella - Walt Disney Version
Mufaro's Beautiful Daughters - African
Rough Faced Girl - Native American
Yeh Chen - Chinese
The Egyptian Cinderella - Egyptian
We will be completing a graphic organizer to compare and contrast the these stories!
To address this standard, we will be using a problem solving strategy called Singapore. The Singapore method to problem solving focuses on thinking critically and diagraming the information in a word problem instead of focusing on "key" words. A Singapore checklist is pictured below!
