Some authors or cultures may share similar stories or
works, but they can vary in detail
What parts of these two stories remain the same or can
be compared?
What details and aspects of these stories differ or
contrast one another?
Standard - CC.1.3.2.H
Compare and contrast two or more versions of
the same story by different authors or from
different culture.
Students will be able to compare and contrast the tales
of Cinderella and YehShen(Ancient Chinese Cinderella
tale) through details like character, plot, setting, etc.
with the use of a Venn Diagram with at least a 90%
accuracy by the end of the second day of the lesson.

Regular students:
Students Venn Diagrams will be checked and gone
over by the teacher to ensure accuracy and
comprehension.
Students will share with a partner or group, the aspects
that they incorporated into the three parts of their Venn
Diagrams (found in Cinderella, Found in Yeh-Shen, and
Found in Both) in order to peer/self evaluate.
ELLs
Speaking: After reading the 2 stories aloud as a class,
students will read the tales again with a partner and
the teacher will observe and listen for proper
pronunciation of words.
Writing: While completing their individual Venn
Diagrams, they will be checked for accurate spelling,
grammar, and punctuation when necessary.
Listening: After reading the two stories aloud the first
time, ask comprehensive questions about the story,
characters, main ideas, settings, etc.
Reading: Observe as the ELL works with a partner to
reread and better understand the stories prior to
creating their Venn Diagrams
Family- What fairy tales have you and your family read
that could be similar or different to these two stories?

Culture- Are there any fairytales that are unique to


your culture that you have seen a spin on, in another
culture or language?
Use of videos or audio for reiterating Cinderella or YehShen, research different fairytales from other cultures
ELL: Incorporating a video telling of Cinderella or YehShen to allow for more visuals and possibility of better
comprehension of ELL students, incorporate the option
of creating a video instead of a Venn diagram where
the students can describe similarities and differences of
the two stories.
Stop periodically while reading the stories to check in
with students by asking questions pertaining to the
text.
Utilize visuals in the book to grasp concepts and details
Give an example to include in the diagram so students
can use it as a model
Point out and list main ideas of the text on the board.

Activating Prior Knowledge

Cinderella and Yeh-Shen, if anything.
ELL: Students can share with a partner some questions
they may have regarding the stories.
Big Idea Statement
Some authors or cultures may share similar stories or
works, but they can vary in detail (this will be listed on
the board and read aloud to the students)
Essential Questions Statement
Essential Questions will also be available on the board
and given out to each ELL for them to follow along with

their finger as they are being read


Objective Statement
Allow all students to hear what they are to be doing
during the lesson (Read the stories together, read them
with a partner, ask questions, create a Venn Diagram)
Give an example model of what the created Venn
Diagram should look like for the stundets
Transition
Allow time for reflection and questions before separating
students into pairs to reread in dept.

Guiding the Practice
Inquire about already know information about the two
stories. Then explain to the students that they will be
able to first hear the story out loud before they are sent
into pairs, then by themselves.
Providing the Independent Practice
Give the students the opportunity to read allowed with a
partner to one another. Give extra time for ELLs to read
with their peers and keep the time open for questions.
When asking students to create their own Venn
Diagrams, keep a model diagram on the board so that
students know what is expected of them.
