Lon Po Po: A Red-Riding Hood Story from China by Ed Young

White board and markers

Anticipatory Set

List specific statements or activities you will use to focus students on the lesson for the day

Talk about the traditional American version of Little Red Riding Hood.  Have the kids share in retelling the story. You can even have props handy to assign parts and act out the story.(10-15 minutes)

For the student's benefit, explain what students will be able to do by the time they successfully complete the lesson.

We are going to read another version of Little Red Riding Hood as told in China.  Listen for the differences in the two stories.

What information is essential for the student to know before beginning and how will this skill be communicated to the students

Read Lon Po Po to the class. (10 minutes)

If you will be demonstrating the skill or competence, how will this be done?

Take notes on the board comparing the differences. 

Mom left instead of Red Riding Hood.  3 kids at home, not one.  The grandma is coming to visit. The kids are not rescued; they have to solve the problem of the wolf and are the heroes of the story etc. (5 minutes)

Check for Understanding

Identify strategies to be used to determine if students have learned the objectives

As the kids which story they like better and why.  Give everyone in the class a chance to respond. (5 minutes)
Guided Practice

List activities which will be used to guide student practice and provide a time frame for completing this practice.

Not applicable

What method of review and evaluation will be used to complete the lesson?

How would you tell the story of Little Red Riding Hood? Who would be the hero?  How would you get rid of the wolf? You are going to get a chance to make up your own story. (5 minutes)
Independent Practice

List homework/seatwork assignment to be given to the students to ensure they have mastered the skill without teacher guidance.

Depending on the age and reading/writing level, have the students draw a picture of their own version of the story to tell in class tomorrow. For the older kids, have them write a short story of their own version of the story.  No story is right or wrong.  The kids are simply to create a story with their own imaginations. (5 minutes)
Assessment What time adjustments need made?  Do you need more or less time for certain aspects of the assignment?  What would you do different?  The same?
