Lesson Plan Details


Who Moved My Cheese? - Digital and Paper/Pencil

Change is part of life, especially these days!

Help your secondary ELA students deal with the change around them as you also introduce the concepts of narrative and literature.

Who Moved My Cheese? the famous allegorical tale about how mice and little people handle change will help your students cope with the uncertainty in our world. It will also allow them choice to explore conflict, characterization, and theme as they follow the choices of Hem and Haw, Sniff and Scurry in the short fable.

It's all in their hands, as students choose to respond by writing paragraphs, essays, charts or rap lyrics, creating drawings, collages, posters or logos. Follow up with an optional essay and assess with a holistic assessment scale provided.

Included in this product are background information, how-to-use suggestions, and enough extension activities to keep your students engaged in learning about change for several days.

Presented here in editable Word documents, perfect for photocopying and use in your face-to-face classroom, as well as editable, fillable Word documents and Google Slides for your LMS, this package has options for you, too.

This resource also includes links to the WMMC? video and the pdf text version.

In addition, I have conducted professional development on writing workshop and differentiation in my own school, at conferences and events, and at schools in Peru and India.
