In my Concept Lesson, I have my students writing their own folktales based on the guidelines on this rubric. In my Concept Lesson, the students are asked to give what they think are distinctive characteristics of folktales. Based off of the rubric and class discussion, they are then asked to write a short folktale of approximately 400 words to be turned in the next day.
In my Socratic Lesson, I have students writing a short six-sentence essay about at least two of the concepts covered in that class. In this lesson, the students are asked to analyze why folktales would have been passed down orally instead of writing, even though the printing press had long since been invented. In order to count them as having participated in the discussion, they will need to prove they were listening as evidenced by this paragraph.
Multiple Choice Assessment
In my Multimedia/Inquiry lesson, I use an interactive SMARTboard lesson to show folktales across cultures. Within this lesson, I have several multiple choice and true/false answer questions that are revealed by interacting with features in the lesson.
