Reflection: Sootface & The Rough-Face Girl: A Comparison of Native American Cinderellas Day 3 of 5 - Section 5: Show What You Know! Sootface and The Rough-Face Girl Activities


The students did a great job completing their Venn diagrams.  I think it was helpful to have the checkboxes at the top of the Venn Diagram, to keep students focused on comparing and contrasting the retelling elements.  As students become better at this skill, the next step I need to take is having them translate the information on the Venn diagram into a paragraph where they compare and contrast the stories with linking words.  This lesson was completed the first week of school, for my tribe, so I was happy that they were able to record their ideas on the Venn Diagram.
