My Students

Children read fairy tales and think they all have happy endings.

My students attend a Title 1 school and come from low-middle to poor economic families.

Most do not have books in their homes and rely on the teacher to expose them to stores that expand their knowledge, vocabulary, and their comprehension to be better readers.

My Project

Most children know the fairy tale of Cinderella but what they do not know is that this fairy tale is found in hundreds of variations and set in cultures around the world. Each story differs widely in characters, plot, the use of magic, and other details but all have a common thread that binds them all. Some do not even know that some Cinderella stories involve a boy who is characterized by a "Cinderella" which helps include male students in the excitement of reading these books. Having this collection of books will help us to learn how to compare and contrast the stories and to learn about the culture that the story is told from.

I chose to do a Cinderella Around the World unit because each books has its own unique storyline and offers insight into its culture in which the students can compare and contrast characters, the plot, the point of view and even footwear of the stories.
