Considering Perspectives and Supporting Opinions:
Wolves in Fiction and Fact
In this eight-week module, students explore the questions: "Who is the wolf in fiction?" and "Who is the wolf in fact?" They begin by analyzing how the wolf is characterized in traditional stories, folktales, and fables. Then they research real wolves by reading informational text. Finally, for their performance task, students combine their knowledge of narratives with their research on wolves to write a realistic narrative about wolves.

The Foundational Reading and Language Standards Resources Package for Grades 3–5 is designed with three purposes: to articulate the research base for instruction regarding reading foundations standards; to point teachers to where that instruction lives “within the modules”; and, most important, to offer teachers options about how to organize an additional literacy block to comprehensively address these standards beyond and alongside the module lessons.
