Product Description
Mark Twain's "A Fable" is a satirical piece that amuses and instructs readers about how our perceptions of what we see in literature or art are often clouded by ourselves -- our preconceived ideas and our imagination. I've taken Twain's "A Fable" and rendered it into a classroom script that allows for up to ten students (six characters and four narrators) to enact it. Also included: the fable in story form for independent reading, a study guide with thought-provoking comprehension questions, and vocabulary work with 18 words and terms, along with a matching activity and a quiz. "A Fable" is an engaging and approachable satirical story that sheds light on how art challenges us. Discussions can go as deep as students are capable! I've used it to make a point about the value of rereading texts, so that our perception of them is not clouded by our imagination and projections.
