Modernizing a Traditional Irish Folktale

Students write their own folktales based on "Cathal O'Cruachan and the Cowherd." In discussions they examine the animal symbolism in the story, as well as the characters, events, problems, and solution. With partners, they select characters from the Irish folktale and place them in contemporary settings. Once their stories are completed, they present them to elementary students.
