Allyn and Bacon Anthology of Traditional Literature - 04 edition

Allyn and Bacon Anthology of Traditional Literature (ISBN10: 0801330971; ISBN13: 9780801330971)

Summary: Instead of buying separate collections of fairy tales, myths, and fables, your students will have access in one single volume to a variety of short pieces from different diverse/international collections and authors.

This scrupulously researched anthology of traditional literature is a useful tool for making stories from diverse cultures, which are sometimes difficult to find, accessible to both students and professors by giving the cultural contexts of in ...show moreternational fables, folktales, myths, and legends.

The clear successor to much bigger anthologies like the Scott Foresman's Anthology of Children's Literature, this brief yet comprehensive anthology is the perfect complement to the books in your children's literature course. It can be used in conjunction with other children's books assigned in the class or as a supplement to your children's literature text.

Designed to suit your classroom needs, this anthology also provides suggestions for activities, as well as numerous variants of the stories in picture-book format for comparison. A general introduction defines folklore and presents the theories and issues involved in collecting, interpreting, and retelling traditional literature for children to help students understand and appreciate stories from other cultures--not always a simple task.

Features

  • Includes a variety of folklore genres--folktales, myths, legends and fables--giving students in-depth understanding of all four of these key genres.
  • Introductions to folkloristics, cultural contexts, and genres at the start of each chapter and at the start of each story provide insight into issues and problems relating to other peoples' stories as well as one's own.
  • Lists of picture books and story collections, scholarly sources, professional resources, Web-based resources, and stories help students find visually appealing variants and resources for further reading.
  • Classroom and library applications help students envision ways to use traditional literature across the curriculum and specifically in language arts (Ch. 5).
  • A Glossary at the end of the book clarifies technical terms in folklore and literature.
  • The Companion Website provides additional stories with greater diversity and includes a list of picture books and other media versions (audio and video) of the stories in the book--at no additional cost to students! Also on the Companion Website is a unique "Bibliographic Database of Picture Book Versions of Fables, Folktales, Myths, and Legends" --a searchable database of 295 (and growing) titles of traditional literature in picture book and story collection format. The database allows searches by author/illustrator, title, subject, character, genre and subtype, and geo/ethnic source.
