These are directions for a fun writing assignment where students create a modern folk tale, using elements found in traditional West African stories. Students build a story around animal characters and make sure to include the environment as an integral part of the story. This is a great way to use cross-curricular teaching techniques and partner up with English teachers. It will be useful to share many different examples of folktales prior to assigning this writing assignment.
