Stories and Stances: Cross-Cultural Encounters with African Folktales.
West, Michael J.; Donato, Richard
Foreign Language Annals, v28 n3 p392-406 Fall 1995
Describes an initiative to incorporate folktales and legends from francophone West Africa into a college-level advanced French literary and cultural studies course. Students recorded their reactions to various texts taken from France and West Africa in reading journals. Analysis of the journals shows that critical competencies in Western culture often do not carry over when students encounter African texts. (25 references) (Author/CK)
