Product Description
The objective of this module is to introduce fables; to provide examples of folk, literary, and modern fables; and to have the student demonstrate knowledge of the structure and uses of fables.

Students will be able to:
- Define a fable as a story featuring animals (usually) that comments on human behavior and human failings.
-Distinguish between folk fables and literary fables
- Identify modern fables as using a traditional form for modern purposes

Fables from Aesop, Jean de La Fontaine, Ambrose Bierce, Don Marquis, and James Thurber are used as examples. Fables are accompanied by short answer/short essay questions. Fable morals/themes can serve as springboards for classroom discussion or longer essay assignments. The module also features a Table of Contents and Answer Key.

This module was originally intended as independent work over a week for A-level high school freshmen. This was done during class time while student conferences were taking place. It would work equally well over a Spring or Winter break. Conversely, the teacher can cherry-pick activities for class participation.
