Three Little Pigs - Media/English/Fairy Tales/Adaptations/Newspapers

Three Little Pigs - Media/English/Fairy Tales/Adaptations/Newspapers

Using The Three Little Pigs as inspiration for this Media bundle, you'll find all you need to cover key terms such as adaptations and stereotypes. Please allow 3-5 hours to cover all material attached. Included: x3 PPTS Embedded videos (links in notes); sample sentence starts, differentiated activities - must,could, should approach. Students will consider the changing nature of how we view and interact with news stories today. Lessons will encourage speaking and listening. Students will also work on their writing skills, with a particular focus on their functional writing skills. I usually follow these lessons up with a segment on Fake News and I'm currently working on developing a bundle for that topic.

Three Little Pigs - L3 - Stereotypes and Letter to the Editor

Three Little Pigs - L3 - Stereotypes and Letter to the Editor

Building on the previous two lessons, lesson three aims to have students define and identify stereotypes. With this keyword in mind, students compose a scaffolded letter to an editor of a newspaper. I usually buy some newspapers the week of these lessons. Photocopying an article and a letter responding to these is a worthwhile activity in the lead up to this lesson. Students usually read the article/letter to the editor in groups. If these lessons have worked for you in the classroom, then please leave a review in the comments section below. It's always great to hear how a group progresses with these activities!
