English 10: Folktale
"The Maiden Wiser Than the Tsar"

September 25, 2002

In today's class, we will discuss our traditional folktales together.

After our discussion, we will read the folktale, "The Maiden Wiser Than the Tsar," as retold by Idries Shah.

For Discussion

What are some well known folktales (For example: Little Red Riding Hood or Cinderella) from your culture and country? Share the titles of two or three stories together.

What kinds of stories do folktales tell? Tell your group what happens in one folktale you know well (For example: A boy shepherd cries "wolf"! He is just playing a game. When a real "wolf" comes, he cries, but no one will come to help him.)

Are some of your group's folktales similar? Discuss how the stories are similar and how different.

Writing Assignment:

Write a short folktale similar to "The Maiden Wiser Than the Tsar," but make your story a modern one, with modern settings and characters. You may shorten the number of tasks your character must perform.

Bring your first draft to share in next week's class, October 2, 2002.

See the teacher's sample.
