Alternative Aesop’s Fables

Alternative Aesop’s Fables

Working in groups, students will identify the characters, setting, and events of one of Aesop’s fables and then create new versions by making changes to the characters, setting, and events.

Student performances of the improvised versions will be video recorded for later scoring using the Teacher Scoring Rubric–Development and Performance in the Teacher Booklet. Students will also respond to a set of five reflection prompts based on their experiences.

This item has not yet been field-tested.


These are analytic rubrics. The column on the left shows the dimension that is being measured in the student’s performance. The levels across the top row indicate the performance level in the dimensions. Occasionally all dimensions and performance levels are exemplified by multiple students in a single recording.
