School: Newaygo Middle School
 Grade Level: 6th grade

Synopsis: ´╗┐Students explore the transmission of folktales over time and continent to evaluate their validity as a literary genre. By reading and analyzing a variety of folktales, students will realize the cultural implications of the genre. Students will create and perform their own original folktale in the form of a script that combines and modernizes talks that they read. After looking at different folktales from around the world, students must think about and create a story to explain a tale that could occur in Newaygo.

Driving Question: How would a fairytale change if set today in Newaygo?

  • How does the setting affect the protagonist problem?
