In this unit, students will explore three types of folktales while practicing their critical thinking skills. In day one, students work in two groups to analyze texts, determine commonalities, and label their learning.
After reviewing the five types, students will select the NF structure that is most appropriate for their topic, explain why this is the best choice, and begin to identify the best text features to include with their projects.
In CCSS assessments, students must be able to read a passage and answer layered questions that represent multiple skills. These lessons help prepare students to look at an article through more than one lens.
