Today’s Goal: Learn to identify the type of character conflict and the moral of a fable-like short story titled, “The Stone” (Lit book pp. 29 – 38).

Outcomes:

Explain what the word “moral” means as a literary term.

State the moral of the story “The Stone” and explain your reasoning.

Predict what you think will happen in “The Stone.”

Restate in your own words the definitions of eight new terms: delved, gaped, plight, obliged, jubilation, rue, mired, fallow.

starter 1

Starter #1:

The folk tale genre of literature includes fables and fairy tales. What type of audience were those stories originally written for?

Children

Fables, even more than fairy tales, were told with a specific purpose in mind. Can you think of any fables that you read (or were read to you) as a child?

The Hare and the Tortoise

Do any of you know that fable? Why do you suppose parents told their children that story?

Fables and fairy tales were created to teach lessons about “right” and “wrong,” about good choices versus bad or unwise choices.

starter 2

Starter #2:

Today we are going to read a story that was written in modern times, but it does not have a modern setting. In fact, this story (called “The Stone”) has a fairy tale-like quality to it. This story was clearly written to teach us a lesson.

What do we call that lesson? [Hint: The __________ of the story.]

Moral

What’s the difference between a moral and a theme?

A theme is an insight you can about life or about human nature.

A moral is a specific lesson that the author wants to teach us.

Let’s turn to p. 29 and check out some new words.
