4 Cause and Effect Review: Cause refers to why something happens. The effect is what happens as a result. One cause can lead to multiple effects, and while effects always follow causes, sometimes authors choose to present them in the opposite order. The Saylor Foundation – CC BY license –

5 Cause and Effect in Grimm's Fairy Tales These tales provide many opportunities to examine cause and effect, as they are often driven by a series of events. In your notebook, identify three or four strong examples of cause and effect. Try to choose different stories for each example. The Saylor Foundation – CC BY license –

6 Finding the Main Idea Being able to find the main idea in a text is one of the most important reading skills. If you can't identify the main idea, you may have trouble comprehending the overall text. The Saylor Foundation – CC BY license –

7 Main Idea in Grimm's Fairy Tales Choose three or four tales to focus on. Try to pick different tales from the earlier activity. In your notebook, list the tales you have chosen and represent the main idea in one to two sentences. If you have trouble identifying the overall main idea, review the tale one paragraph at a time. Looking at the main idea from each paragraph may lead you to an overall main idea. The Saylor Foundation – CC BY license –

8 Compare and Contrast Being able to compare and contrast two texts is an important skill. When you compare two things, you look at how they are similar. When you contrast, you look at how they are different. The Saylor Foundation – CC BY license –

9 Comparing and Contrasting Two of Grimms' Fairy Tales Choose any two tales to compare and contrast. If there were two tales you especially liked, think about using those. Your interest may give you better insights than a tale that did not engage you as much. In your notebook, create a Venn diagram. Venn diagrams are created by creating two overlapping circles. Use the diagram to help you identify the similarities and differences in the two tales. Then use it to help you turn your findings into a short essay. The Saylor Foundation – CC BY license –
