Primary School Language and Literature teachers and first and second year secondary school teachers
- To define cumulative tales, fables, noodlehead stories, trickster stories, pourquoi stories, legends, myth, fairy tales, newfangled fairy tales, tall tales, biblical tales, Hindu and Buddhist tales, urban legends.
- To identify those folktales that contribute to developing intercultural communicative competence with children.
- To explore how folktales encourage children to become more aware of otherness while strengthening their own cultural identity.
- To foster positive attitudes towards other cultures such as interest, empathy and tolerance.
- To acquaint teachers with the wide range of textual intervention and intercultural activities which can be generated by a well-chosen folktales.
Folktales are a great point of entry to introduce students to the literary and cultural heritage of diverse cultures and to foster their intercultural competence. We’ll be delving into the different folkloric genres that are part of the storytelling traditions of cultural communities across the world. We’ll be working with a theoretical and practical framework to enable teachers to exploit the folktales by means of a menu of intertextual and intercultural activities, depending on the genre.
The sessions will be organized in terms of workshops for participants to enrich their understanding of the texts with contributions from the group. The latter will discuss the target audience for each text, points of entry, textual interventions and intertextual links which can be established with other verbal or visual texts.
