WHY use folktales?
the great power of the story is that it engages
us affectively as well as requiring our cognitive
attention we learn the content of the story
while we are emotionally
engaged by its
characters or events. -
Kieran Egan, Teaching as Storytelling
5
WHY use folktales?
  • The use of literature designed for children in
    the target culture allows learners of the target
  • language to share
  • cultural experiences
  • and attitudes in a very
    direct way
  • Curtain and Pesola
  • Languages and Children,
  • Making the Match

6
WHY use folktales?
Through the characters on the page,
children are able to live out their worst fears
and their fondest wishes. Valuable life
lessons are conveyed through the stories
which children readily absorb in a non-
threatening and even
enjoyable context. -Bruno Bettelheim, The Uses
of Enchantment
7
WHY use folktales?
Children do not learn about complex
grammatical points by either making errors and
then being corrected or through explicit
instruction in grammar. The knowledge of
specific grammatical rules "...is
part of a child's biological
endow-
ment, part of the structure of the
language faculty. about 99 percent of
teaching is
making students feel
interested in the material. -Noam
Chomsky, Language and Problems of Knowing
8
With folktales you
will
won't
differentiate activities to meet the needs of diverse learners Require all students to interact in the same way with the material
teach grammar and vocabulary in context teach grammar and vocabulary in isolated lists
incorporate language, culture and content teach language separate from its cultural context
communicate with the classroom teacher to reinforce curriculum organize lessons on topics that are disconnected from the students
