By exploring various folktales about sleep, students will examine thematic similarities and differences across texts. Students will construct summaries of their self – selected readings, highlighting each text’s main idea and relevant supporting details. Completion of the open-ended response questions will allow students to analyze various aspects of each reading using evidence from the text and their own experiences to support their position. Finally, students will be asked to reflect on what they have learned through their literary exploration by completing a personal reflection.
