Teach students to self-question and explore the folktale genre, including legends, tall tales, myths, fairy tales, and fables.
This chart lists 20 questions that students should ask themselves when evaluating folktales. It also requires students to cite evidence from text to give examples of folktale characteristics.
This is very powerful when teaching students to self-question, find evidence in text, and evaluate folktales.
I hope you find this to be effective in your instruction!
