Shizuoka JALT:

The Prince and the Plumber: Recreating Folktales in the Classroom

Date: Sunday, April 21st, 2002 Time: 1:30 PM - 4:30 PM

Speaker: Robert Croker, Nanzan University and Bev Curran, Aichi Shukutoku University

The motivation and creative spark provided by hearing and attempting to retell folk and fairy tales make them a wonderful resource for exploring language and culture. In the classroom, these stories can be used to give students listening and speaking practice and cultural knowledge, while delighting their imaginations. This presentation will suggest activities that use traditional, revised, and unconventional folk and fairy tales in different media to develop language skills through storytelling, and raise a more critical awareness of some of the cultural assumptions embedded in these narratives.
