This Pourquoi Tales lesson plan also includes:
Familiarize your literary scholars with the Pourquoi genre as they prepare to write their own tale. Although there isn't much detail here, you can easily tweak and embellish ideas to make them work in your classroom. Learners fold paper to create a 2x7 semantic feature analysis chart comparing Pourquoi and general fiction stories. In partners and as a whole group, they identify text features and record differences. The chart serves to guide them in writing their own Pourquoi tale.
