What are critical lenses?

Complete this activity first and discuss as a class:

Then take a look at this Google Presentation and take some notes:

Here is a Notebook file (to be used with a SMARTboard) that introduces critical lenses. You could use this instead of the Google Presentation.

You might also read The True Story of the Three Little Pigs and compare it with the "original" fairy tale. Ask students: what do differences in the accounts tell you about the "truth" about the actual incident? The value or importance of having more than one side to a story?
