    Though the Cinderella Trilogy page is now gone, the Kennedy Center website is still available. This is a great resource for integrating VAPA into standards.

    I highly recommend this resource. In my 4th grade class we used this resource for standard 3.4 (Compare and contrast tales from different cultures). The lessons were interesting and easy to do. The students really enjoyed the process and seemed to develop a deeper understanding of the usefulness of comparing and contrasting information.

Description

In this ARTSEDGE lesson, students compare and contrast three culturally distinct variations of the "Cinderella" folktale: "Rhodopis," the Egyptian version; "Yeh-Shen," the Chinese version; and "The Hidden One," the Native American story. Through class discussion and various activities, students explore storytelling traditions, categories of folktales, and the basic components of fairy tales. Students learn about the cultures represented by each "Cinderella" tale through small group projects.
