Children are in school, leaves are crunching under your feet, and the distant cheers of enthusiastic football fans can be heard on Friday night -- can fall be far away? Although you may not be ready bid farewell to summer, Mother Nature has another plan! Prepare your students and yourself for the change of season with creative lessons that share an autumn theme.
Fables, fairy tales, folktales, legends, myths, and tall tales --six literary genres that engage student interest--can be used in the classroom to inspire creative thinking and writing. This week, Education World offers five lessons to introduce students to the literary genres--and to their own imagination!
