During this one-time class, students will learn how to study Aesop's fables. We will discuss what a fable is, read fables together, and answer wh- questions (who, what, where) to check for understanding. Then we will examine the fable's lesson and re-write it in our own words. Finally, we will write our own ending to a fable with a relevant lesson. As the teacher, I will guide the students to make "smart guesses'' about the fable using context clues and vocabulary clues. No prior experience...
Students will leave class with a deeper knowledge of Aesop's fables, practice with reading comprehension and inferencing, and analysis of how the lessons can be applied to their lives.
I have taught reading comprehension and inference skills to students in public elementary and middle schools for 4 years as a certified speech-language pathologist. I have used fables to determine a student's baseline skills as well as to measure progress throughout the year.
50 minutes per week in class, and maybe some time outside of class.
We will read the following Aesop's fables: -The Dog and His Reflection -The Fox and the Crow -The Lion and the Mouse -The Monkey and the Peanuts
