Motivation:

To hook students and gain interest into this story, I will enthusiastically show students a variety of versions of the story Cinderella, making sure
to have a version that represents the diversity in culture of my students.
Students will be motivated to read alternate versions of this classic tale that represent their family and home culture, and this excitement will
serve as an entry point to the first lesson in this unit.

Sample of alternate versions of the story include:


Adapted from Echevarria, Vogt & Short (Revised 2015 S. Laqua)
Domitila by Jewell Reinhart Coburn (Mexican tale of Cinderella)
Yeh-Shen by Ai-Ling Louie (Cinderella story from China)
Cindrillon by Robert D San Souci (Caribbean Cinderella)
The Orphan by Soula Mitakidou (Cinderella from Greece)
Cinderella by Fawzia Gilani (Islamic tale)
Presentation:

Classroom Set Up:


24 students
6 heterogeneous table groups of 4
Large whiteboard
Flat screen TV for digital presentation materials
Large collaboration table at back of room for workshops

Hook:
Teacher will ask students to discuss in their groups what they know about the story of Cinderella, groups will discuss, teacher to walk around
and monitor discussions. Teams will have their reporter share out and teacher will begin large brain dump on board of what students share.
Teacher to motivate students to continue into the unit, by tying their previous knowledge (shared above) to the variations of the Cinderella
story- linking past learning to new concepts. Teacher will preface unit, by stating the importance of learning various reading and comprehension
skills- providing students with clear purpose of lesson.

Mini Lesson
Teacher to present mini-lesson on Context Clues to whole class, on large flat screen TV.
Teacher to define Context Clues and guide students to underline target word, circle clues, and determine meaning
Practice questions done together on slide presentation and then collaboratively with table mates.
Teacher to walk around and monitor discussions and ask informal questions
Students then to complete Student Chart 1A vocabulary: rags, scour, mattress
Students complete Chart 1B when complete with 1A

Workshop
Small group (ELLs or other students requiring direct support as identified in informal assessment) to the collaboration table for support on
Student Chart 1A. Teacher to work through and model thinking aloud how to complete task.
Have students turn to Student Chart 1B.
Teacher to pre-teach reveal and demeanor using the Vocabulary Lesson slides, as students follow along write definitions and examples
Students will
Write each words definition in their student charts
Engage in partner talk to come up with an example sentence and write it in their student charts
Share their example sentences with the class

Differentiation two levels:


Whole Class
Student chart 1A to be completed without direct teacher support, students can work with tablemates and use digital resources presented to
support their learning. Students will work at own pace.
Student Chart 1B to be completed in the same manner- modified worksheet does not include sentence frames
Small Group
Student worksheet 1A will be completed with much teacher support and modeling
Student Chart 1B completed in small group setting with support and worksheet is modified to include sentence frames and Spanish equivalent
words
Practice/Application
Interactive Read 1:
Interactive reading of pages 1-10 of the text. Students reading at appropriate individual reading level to pair up (with previously determined
fluency partner) and read, while stopping at each designated section to answer provided questions.
Students at workshop table to follow along with text as teacher reads aloud.
Teacher stops to identify and discuss vocabulary and students refer to glossary- Student Chart 1C
Teacher continues to read and stops frequently to question students-supports comprehension

Interactive Read 2:
Adapted from Echevarria, Vogt & Short (Revised 2015 S. Laqua)
Students re-read--if paired previously, 2nd read is done independently and if in small group, students will read in pairs
Students will re-read and then complete Student Chart 1D (higher level thinking- how/why questions)
Teacher to monitor reading and worksheet completion
Review answers whole-group, correcting and elaborating as necessary

Differentiation
Re-teaching:
Students working with fluency partners to continue through tasks in a self-directed manner, answering questions without direct teacher support
and feedback. Students completing Read 1 in partners will complete second read and chart 1D alone.
Student Chart 1D does not include sentence frames.

Students at workshop table to receive much support, teacher read aloud, teacher questioning/clarifying, guiding students through reading and
glossary checklist, constantly checking for understanding. Teacher to stop and explain concepts, vocabulary, details of text throughout
Interactive Read 1. Student Chart 1D- modified to include sentence frames.

Throughout Read 2, teacher to monitor student work, discussions, and identify areas of growth or needs for re-teaching. Students identified as
needing further support, will continue to work with teacher and benefit from further direct instruction. Students that demonstrate
understanding will continue without teacher support.
Review and Assessment (examples of two types- formative and summative):
INFORMAL Assessment
Monitoring Student Discussions/Partner Talk teacher to listen to student discussions and make note of understanding or misconceptions,
clarifying when necessary
Questioning teacher to ask questions about context clues, vocabulary, and the text to determine understanding, making note when challenges
for students arise

FORMAL Assessment
Student Chart 1A- Context clue summative worksheet: will determine understanding of identifying word meaning through use of context clues.
Scores on this worksheet can be used to determine which students require re-teaching.

Student Chart 1D- Comprehension summative worksheet: allow students to demonstrate comprehension of text and answer higher order
thinking skills (how/why questions). Scores on this worksheet can be used to determine which students require re-teaching

Both forms of assessment allow me to identify which students have grasped the necessary concepts, knowledge, and skills required to continue
throughout the unit and which students would benefit from further support and instruction.

The formal assessments (student charts 1A and 1D) do come in modified versions, which allow students to show mastery at appropriate levels,
by accommodating for language needs.

Sample from text:
*Sample of textpictures and bolded vocabulary that aligns to glossary
Teacher asks questions for each and initiates small discussion to ensure understanding

Onceupon atime, a
nobleman lived
happily with his sweet
and gentle-natured
wife and their young
daughter. And when
his wife died, he took
another, who seemed
as sweet and gentle as
the first.
But no sooner was the wedding over than the new wife revealed herself to
be the mean and jealousperson she truly was. She couldntstand the way
her new stepdaughters pleasing demeanor made her own daughters look
silly and selfish. That is why she gave her stepdaughter only rags to wear
and made her do all the worst choresaround the house.
