This guide is designed to aid the teacher who has both Vietnamese and native American children in the classroom. It presents some language learning strategies based on a collection of Vietnamese folktales which have been adapted for elementary school children. It is divided into four parts: (1) suggested language/ cultural learning activities; (2) summary of grammatical structures for each tale; (3) suggested cultural discussion for each tale; and (4) the folktales themselves. The first section is further divided into (1) English language learning activities; (2) Vietnamese language building activities; and (3) Multicultural activities. The first folktale is "The Sky Prince of Phu-Dong," for which a prototype lesson is presented that emphasizes regular and irregular past tense, imperatives, and passive voice. The other folktales are entitled "The Silver Stream""Quan Trien and the Magic Coat,""The Magic Bamboo,""Tam and the Silver Slipper," and "Betel." (Author/CFM)
