dc.description.abstractLearning literature is not just about reading and writing, but about how knowledge is learned and put to use. Learning should be interactive rather than sedentary. Through collaboration, independent ideas, and research, I have put together a unit on emphasizing literary elements using folk and fairy tales as a medium. The lessons are full of interactive activities that will transfer knowledge to students in more ways than just filling out worksheets and doing homework. Not only literature will be taught, but teamwork and collaboration. Because diversity is also important to teach, I have included cultural aspects in my lessons as well. Through this unit, students will gain exposure to different types of literature and different cultures. They will see folk and fairy tales as something more than just a bedtime story.en_US
