Jack And The Beanstalk v. Jack And The Meanstalk – Text to Text Schema

In Balanced Literacy the 2Js compared the two stories Jack and the Beanstalk with Jack and the Meanstalk.  The students really enjoyed how different Jack and the Meanstalk was from the traditional story.  They did a great job at finding what was the same and what was different between the two stories.  Comparing and discussing the two versions really helped them understand both stories at a deeper level.
