In groups, students read and listen to stories on the accompanying CD; learn universal themes and story components; practice techniques of projection, pace, and dramatic flair; and apply their knowledge to create original folktales to be performed before parents and guests at a culminating Folk Tale Festival. The teacher’s guide contains procedures, summaries of 100 suggested tales, handout masters, and scripts for the CD’s 14 tales; student guides include note-taking strategies, a world outline map, and storytelling tips. The full unit runs for 20 class periods, but is easily shortened.
