Popcorn Story Frames from a Multicultural Perspective.
DiLella, Carol Ann
Popcorn story frames from a multicultural perspective are holistic outlines that in the reading/writing process facilitate comprehension for all cultures learning to read and write stories. Popcorn story frames are structured and modeled in a horizontal fashion just like popcorn pops in a horizontal fashion. The frames are designed for learners who tend to learn best when the teacher models the reading/writing process with organized/structured pictures. Critical thinking skills require the interaction and use of both vertical (the job of the left side of the brain) and horizontal (the job of the right side of the brain) types of learning. The integration of vertical with horizontal outline formats facilitates comprehension in the reading/writing process. (Various story frame models, examples of vertical and horizontal outline formats, several fables, and a list of 20 story frame resources are attached.) (RS)
