Rund um Fabeln: Kopiervorlagen für den Deutschunterricht
This large-format pamphlet of 80 pages offers xerox patterns for handouts in classes on fables. I find it very well done. It is divided into five sections. Describing and defining a fable. Interpreting and writing fables. Groups of fables with similar themes. Dealing with fables creatively. Fables from around the world. There is a good exercise, for example, on 20: Why, for Phaedrus and again for Luther, do fables come into being? Both fabulists provide an answer. That question is followed by two good samples to ascribe to either fabulist. The booklet makes excellent use of a great variety of fabulists, including a generous sprinkling of moderns. I would love to teach this book in a class or course!
