Grab this doc to facilitate an investigation of Traditional Literature (TL) with your students! Teacher will begin briefly, sharing what the general characteristics of TL are, but then, use the bibliography included to gather books of each of the five subsets and set students off to construct meaning of each. Together with small groups, they will read stories in each of the five categories of TL: Fables, Fairy Tales, Myths, Legends, and Tall Tales and use a matrix (graphic organizer that is also included) to begin their investigation. End with a little more research online, and your students will finally be able to share their learning with the rest of their peers!
