Folktales: Oral Traditions as a Basis for Instruction in our Schools

Students visit their school library to read a variety of folktales. While they read, they identify the trickster or hero in each and discuss how the character represents the chaos in the real world. In groups, they write their own verison of the folktales making to sure to incorporate morals and values. To end the lesson plan, they share them with the class and define new vocabulary.
