Day 4: "Rumpelstiltskin"

This lesson focuses on the characters and their motivations. The intent is to help students to understand that authors give characters traits that drive story events. Today, students do not need to read the entire text again; they locate answers independently or with a partner. Teachers work through supporting questions with students, noting a procedure for describing the queen. Students can use this as a reference when answering the focus question in which they must describe the king. The focus question should be completed independently. Student responses to the focus question can be collected and used as a formative assessment to determine which students should watch the comprehension skill video.
