This assignment for a composition class uses morals from fables to develop a thesis for an essay. It could be adapted for literature, history, or social studies lessons as a way of showing that students understand the concept of using a story--or a group of anecdotes or personal experiences or other examples--to illustrate and support a generalization. See also http://www2.ferrum.edu/applit/studyg/STUDYGFOlk.htm for guidelines on teaching with fables and short works of folklore.

Writing standards appropriate for your composition course. For example:
a unified focus and organization
b. logical development of ideas and supporting examples
c. precise and effective wording
d. standard sentence structure and vocabulary
e. avoidance of mechanical and grammatical errors
