Anita Archer - Introduction of Story Grammar using Read Aloud

This video focuses on narrative story elements using a folktale read aloud. The teacher defines what a folktale is, builds background knowledge, and reviews story elements.

Discussion Points: What components of an effective lesson were evident? What behaviors did you notice the teacher/students displaying? How was student engagement fostered and maintained?
