Summary:
What are the ingredients of a tall tale? Like any story, a tall tale includes characters, a setting, a problem and a solution. But in a tall tale, ordinary characters -- whether fictional or based on real people or occupations -- may face extraordinary challenges and prevail with outlandish solutions, or may conquer ordinary problems in inventive ways. Tall tales often offer explanations of historic, geographic or cultural milestones. In Creating a Tall Tale, these elements are woven together so that students see firsthand how a new tall tale based on a familiar character -- such as a schoolteacher -- unfolds and evolves. Part of the multivolume Greatest American Tall Tales & Legends Video Series. A Teacher's Guide is included and available online.

Only available in the US.
