I’ve just made an addition to The Best Resources For Learning How To Write Response To Literature Essays:

We usually have students pick one of the many Cinderella stories from various cultures and write a response to literature essay. As a “warm-up” to it (so to speak), there’s an ArtsEdge lesson that has students read three different “Cinderella” stories:

The Egyptian “Cinderella”

The Chinese “Cinderella”

The Native American “Cinderella”

Students then complete an online interactive Venn Diagram comparing the three stories.

I’m looking forward to having students try it out.
