1. MOTIVATIONAL PART (3-5 minutes) - introduction of the story with help of pictures - the teacher puts the pictures one by one on the board - the pupils try to guess what the topic is2. PRE-READING ACTIVITIES (10 minutes) a) Restoration of the original fairy tale with help of the pictures b) Talking about the book and film versions of the fairy tale - 1697 by Charles Perrault: Cinderella; or, The Little Glass Slipper - 19th century by Jacob and Wilhelm Grimm: Aschenputtel - 1899 - first movie version by Georges Méliès: Cinderella - 1950 - Disney’s version: Cinderella - 1969 - Czech musical film (black-and-white): Popelka - 1973 - Czech-German movie: Tři oříšky pro Popelku - 1998 - US romance, “the real story of Cinderella”: Ever After - 2004 - US modernization of the story: A Cinderella Story (There are hundreds of adaptations of this fairy tale. I have chosen only those I think can be interesting for the children and they probably know them.) + REVOLTING RHYMES by ROALD DAHL3. WHILE-READING ACTIVITIES (30 minutes) a) Pupils read the story for themselves with help of dictionaries - because of some unknown words. There is also one passage with gaps - pupils have to fill them in according to the sense and rhyming (box with words next to the text) (I would not pre-teach the vocabulary because it could destroy the moment of surprise when reading the story.) b) Reading the story together, checking the gap-filling and explaining some confusing passages
4. POST-READING ACTIVITIES (45 minutes) a) Comparing the version by Roald Dahl with the traditional fairy tale (focusing on similarities and differences) b) Pupils draw a comics based on Roald Dahl’s story (work in groups of 3-4) c) Watch the online version of the fairy tale on YouTube.com (reading accompanied by pictures) http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=MtXGmnR9F5YSources:Cinderella.
