Lesson goal r eview key features of folk lore and devise strategies for memorizing those elements

Lesson Goal: Review key features of folk lore and devise strategies for memorizing those elements.

Outcomes: Be able to . . .

Identify proper nouns, common nouns, and collective nouns.

Apply the correct noun form for any word given to make it singular, plural, or possessive.

Devise a strategy for memorizing important material in lessons.

Define “mnemonic” and apply that technique in preparing for a quiz.

Starter #1Everything I say today is strategic (that is, with a plan or purpose in mind). So listen carefully and think about what I am saying and why I am saying it. . . . 

How many of you could tell me the name of my dog?

Champ is his nickname: Can you guess his full name?

How many of you like to take Cornell Notes?

How many of you would welcome studying for a test or a quiz without me giving you any notes in advance?

It’s up to you today whether you take notes.

If you do, I’m not going to tell you how to do it.

Starter #2Recently I had an “aha” about my dog, Champ. I realized that we have something in common (that is, a common characteristic). We both love a challenge! 

As a student, that quality comes in handy. When a teacher gave difficult or demanding material to learn, I viewed that as a game of sorts—a personal challenge. So I would create memory tricks to help me learn new material.

If I had a long list of items to memorize, I would narrow things down to the most import words/phrases. Then I would re-arrange the order to fit my memory trick.

For example, if I were studying for a quiz over the Folk Lore Unit, I might do something like this. . . .

[Take out your Cornell Notes for the Folk Lore Unit and I’ll show you my memory trick.] 

Starter #3To memorize the 10 elements of fairy tales, I would narrow down the phrases and re-arrange the order, like this:

Magical charms/spells

Youngest/only child is hero

Character types: princes, princesses, witches, etc.

Happy ending

A disguise

Makes things happen in “three’s”

Poses riddles

Impossible task

Overcomes evil with goodness

Not able to open a door

Can you see the pattern, the memory trick?

Starter #4There’s a name used for memory tricks like this. They are called “mnemonics” (pronounced “nehmoniks”). Here is how my mnemonic plays out:

Magicalcharms/spells

Youngest/only child is hero

C haracter types: princes, princesses, witches, etc.

Happyending

Adisguise

Makes things happen in “three’s”

Posesriddles

Impossibletask

Overcomes evil with goodness

Not able to open a door

Starter #5How could we use a mnemonic to remember the 5 characteristics of mythologicalheroes? Maybe we would use something like this:

M_______________

H________________

E________________

R________________

O ________________

Magical powers/abilities

Helped by the gods

Eventually save their whole society

R (are) sometimes demigods

Overwhelming difficulties

  • Starter #6How could we use a mnemonic to remember . . .

  • The four sub-genres in our Folk Lore Unit?

  • Folk Tales (includes Fairy Tales), Myths, Fables, Legends (includes Tall Tales)

  • The purpose of each of those sub-genres (what makes them distinct/different)?

  • So . . . how could we use a mnemonic to remember these lists?

  • That’s for you to decide . . . as you study. 
