What is a structural difference? (something that is different in the makeup, formation, foundation, or structure) What makes a fairytale? (they are set in the distant past; they often have an open phrase, “Once upon a time…” or “A very long time ago…”; the characters are often imaginary (e.g. dragons, elves, fairies, etc.) or royalty and have magical powers (e.g. granting wishes); they have difficult problems but end happily where good wins over evil) What makes a fable? (they take place in the distant past or a timeless place; they are short; they have 2-3 characters that are often animals that talk and act like humans; there is usually a moral, or lesson, at the end of the story) What makes a myth? (they may explain – not realistically – how something in nature looks or works or why people behave in certain ways; the characters are often gods or goddesses who interact with humans) What makes a legend? (they are set in the past; they tell the story of a hero(ine); they might be based on facts and real history, but through retellings, the plot has been exaggerated and some facts are distorted) What makes a fantasy? (they are set in a place that doesn’t exist in the real world and has events that couldn’t happen in the real world with characters – people, animals, objects, creatures, etc. – that are able to do things they couldn’t do in the real world) What makes a “tall tale”? (they are set in the recent or distant past; they use humorous exaggeration to tell the adventures of a fictional, or sometimes nonfictional, character; they are very creative and unusual) What makes a folk tale? (they are stories passed down – originally orally – from one generation to another, reflecting the original culture; characters may include inanimate objects that speak; they often teach a moral or lesson; some are call “trickster tales”; action builds through repetition; has exciting climaxes at the end; goodness and intelligence prevails over evil and foolishness; told from 3rd-person point of view) What makes mystery/horror? (a puzzle, enigma, or problem to solve; detectives of some type are the characters; the plot is usually somewhat realistic) What makes science fiction? (based on unproven scientific idea(s); usually involving aliens, outer space, and UFOs; plot is tied to ideas of science but is fantasized) What are examples of fairytales? (Beauty and the Beast, Cinderella, Peter Pan, The Three Bears, etc.) What are examples of fables? (“The Tortoise and the Hare,” “The Fox and the Grapes,” etc.) What are examples of myths? (“How the World was Created,” “How the Lion Got Its Whiskers,” etc.) What are examples of legends? (Robin Hood, The Legend of the Persian Carpet, etc.) What are examples of fantasies?
