Description

Overview:
This activity for gifted learners might serve as a culminating activity as part of a larger unit on fables, folktales, & myths. Students will take part in close readings of a variety of stories throughout the unit (including fables, folktales, & myths).  In this activity, gifted learners would work either individually or with a partner to closely read Amos & Boris by William Steig.  They will then work to decipher the central message(s) of the story and what fable(s) this story can be connected to.  As they read, they will pay special attention to two main details that help to convey the story:  the word choice and illustrations.  Using the central message of the story as an anchor and the saying, “A picture’s worth a thousand words,” they will then argue that the Steig’s word choice and illustration do or do not support the story’s central message in the best possible way by creating an audio/visual presentation that supports their argument.  This lesson was developed by NCDPI as part of the Academically and/or Intellectually Gifted Instructional Resources Project. This lesson plan has been vetted at the state level for standards alignment, AIG focus, and content accuracy.
