Did you know
Did you know…?

  • There are different levels of thought when you’re reading, just like there are different levels of video games.

  • When you play video games…

    • The lower levels are easier, but everyone can beat them.

    • The higher levels are much harder, and require more effort, but when you beat them it is much more rewarding!

  • When you are reading…

    • The lower levels of thinking are more obvious.

    • The higher levels of thinking require you to work harder, and dig deeper into the material, but they help you learn the most.

What questions allow us to reach deeper levels of thinking?

Details: characteristics

Details about the story The Little Mermaid:

    How deep is our level of thought

    when we find details?

Patterns in the story The Little Mermaid:

  • Ariel disobeys her father several times.

    • She swims up to the surface to see humans.

    • She collects human items.

    • She meets with Ursula.

      How do we find patterns in stories?


Unanswered questions what do you still want to know
Unanswered Questions:What do you still want to know?

  • Did Ariel ever turn back into a mermaid again?

  • I wonder if Ariel still enjoyed collecting random human things after she became a human.

    What unanswered questions do you

    have about the story?


Rules
Rules

  • What are the rules of the story? Of the genre? Of the society?

    • Structure, Order, Reasons, Organization

  • Ariel is not supposed to go on land.

  • She is also not supposed to visit Ursula

  • Disney films usually end with a “happily ever after” between a male and female character.


Trends common patterns
Trends: common patterns

  • Trends in fairy tales like The Little Mermaid:

    • There is a “damsel in distress” who finds herself in a situation where she needs help.

    • They usually find true love and live “happily ever after” in the end.

      What other trends do you often find in fairy tales?


Ethics judging right or wrong
Ethics: judging… right or wrong?

Thinking about ethics in the story The Little Mermaid:

  • It was wrong and selfish for Ariel to leave her family under the sea to become a human.

  • Ariel did the right thing because she truly loved Prince Erick and deserved to be with him.

How deep is our level of thought

when we discuss ethics?


Big ideas what s the main idea
Big Ideas: what’s the main idea?

  • The big idea in The Little Mermaid:

    • To find the big idea, you need to sum up the overall, most important idea throughout the story.

      What is an example of a big idea

      in The Little Mermaid?


Across the disciplines
Across the Disciplines:

  • Connect, associate, cross-curricular (across subjects)

  • How can you compare this film/story to something of a different discipline? To real life? To science? To history? To economics?

How can you connect this story or its themes/contents to a different subject?


Different perspectives points of view how do others see the situation
Different Perspectives: points of viewHow do others see the situation?

Different Perspectives in the story The Little Mermaid:

  • Flounder would miss Ariel if she was no longer living under the sea.

  • Prince Erick would be happy if Ariel became a human.

    Why do we need to consider different perspectives when we read?


Changes over time
Changes Over Time

  • How have characters changed throughout the story?

    • King Triton changed his mind about humans, and allowed his daughter to be a human in the end.

      Why should we think about the changes that happen over time?
