Description

Everyone loves a good story, right? But did you know that for generations, stories were not just used for entertainment. Rather, societies used stories as a way to teach its citizens valuable lessons and morals. This kind of lesson-teaching story is called a “fable.” The oldest written record of fables hails back to the Ancient Greeks and the fabulist, Aesop. But fables were not only a Western tradition. On the African continent, fables were an important part of oral storytelling, passed down from generation to generation, teaching not only lessons in morality, but also helping people understand their place in the natural world.


This course will explore the elements of narrative storytelling and specifically fables. It will introduce students to fables from different cultures and parents will be given reading workshop techniques to help their children become stronger readers. It will also take parents through the steps of writing workshop to help their children create their own fable that they can “publish” and share with their friends and family.

Who this course is for:
  • grades 2-5
  • Aspiring writers and storytellers, homeschoolers, students seeking additional support with writing
