Reflection: Student Ownership The Golden Sandal: Day 3 of Cinderella Unit - Section 1: A Middle Eastern Version of Cinderella


     Students really enjoyed making a 3 dimensional slipper or shoe.  They can also take home the pattern and construct their individual shoes at home to bring back and share tomorrow.  Time just does not allow for each student to make a shoe during this lesson since I want them to have a chance to collaborate and share.  

     Working in their collaborative groups to make one shoe fits the Common Core speaking and listening standard of student to student discussions in small groups, following agreed upon rules. Once students master this technique, it can be done for any lesson.  This is a creative process, yet it aligns with common core because this activity promotes collaborative conversations.
