Not So Grimm: Teaching Language and Culture Through Folklore

Sign up or log in to save this to your schedule and see who's attending!

Versions of popular folktales exist in all languages, illustrate cultural values and human desires, and are continuously reinvented in advertising, literature, media and art. Folklore-based activities allow learners to compare, contrast and analyze their own and German communities, gain insights, and perform, narrate, and interpret figurative language. Hands-on assignments for all proficiency levels range from grammar practice and intercultural analysis to creative writing and can be adapted to any instructional level. In German.
