Overview: This lesson is best done after having told the students at least 5 traditionally structured stories. (You can watch examples of such stories for young learners on my Youtube channel: Rebecca Lemaire . Go to playlists for different age groups.) Students look at the stories they have heard from you, they analyse the traditional structure of a story and make a structure and storyboard for their own story. They tell the class their story and/or make a mini book or short film.
