This unit is based on Pourquoi Stories, which are stories of origin or stories that tell how or why something came to be. These stories are a form of the literary narrative. This unit is meant for students to explore the structure of stories and also what stories show the reader about different cultures. Specifically, this unit addresses the introductory hook, plot diagramming, the four basic conflicts in narrative and character development. This unit highlights these literary ideas by embracing the following multiple intelligences: spatial, linguistic, logical/mathematical, kinesthetic and naturalistic.
