Instructional Ideas

  • Have kids turn the activity into an informative essay about how the prince and the pilot have different traits than each other, and than they do
  • Prompt learners to complete the activity at home, and compare responses in a class discussion
Classroom Considerations

  • Illustration in the background is distracting and could interfere with understanding
  • Lesson is written by a student teacher, so the directions and rationale are lengthy
Pros

  • Versatile for other novel or short story units
  • Encourages kids to think critically about character traits, and to compare them to their own experiences and characteristics
Cons

  • You'll need to provide more concrete assessment in the activity, as it counts on the Venn diagram as the only source of assessment, rather than any extension of the lesson
