Folk Tales Fiction Unit
« on: May 12, 2017, 11:46:15 AM »

I developed a Folk Tales fiction unit for my beginner-low-intermediate Reading and Writing class.
On the website link below you'll be able to access background information, lesson plans, and materials. :D

How can you adapt/use these materials in your teaching context?

Some ideas:
  • You can use the texts, powerpoints, and handouts as is (or feel free to modify as needed).
  • Is there a topic or theme from these stories that could be useful for you to focus on? (e.g. cross-cultural communication, creation myth stories, having students write their own folk tales).
  • The texts offer a variety of grammatical points you could focus on. I primarily focus on phrasal verbs, but you could also analyze genre, structures of stories, transferring to different tense, etc.
