12 PROJECT TÍTULO Level 1 Step 1 1 Sit in groups of three or four students and read the definition. What is a generalization? A generalization is an idea that applies to a group of people. Usually, generalizations don t reflect reality. Characters in tall tales are based on generalizations of the people that live in a particular region. For example: Pecos Bill is a generalization of Texan people. This generalization shows that all Texans are cowboys. 2 Do an online search and find images and information of the people that live in a particular region of your country. Then answer: What generalizations can you identify about the people that live in that region? Complete the table. Generalizations Are they true or false? Why do these generalizations exist? 1 True / False 2 True / False 3 True / False 4 True / False 5 True / False 3 Choose one of the generalizations from Activity 2. This generalization can help you to create a tall tale that has a setting and a hero from your own country. Now read the definition. What is a hyperbole? A hyperbole is an exaggeration. Tall tales have hyperbolic characters that are part of hyperbolic events. For example: Pecos Bill has hyperbolic characteristics. He can catch a twister with his lasso and tame a wild horse, Widowmaker. 4 Heroes have hyperbolic characteristics. Think of three hyperbolic characteristics for your tall tale character and complete the table. These characteristics are your character s powers. Hyperbolic characteristic 1 Hyperbolic characteristic 2 Hyperbolic characteristic 3

13 PROJECT Level 1 Step 2 1 Do an online search and find information about the region of your country your tall tale character belongs to. What are the natural difficulties your tall tale character can find in that region? Complete the spidergram. 2 Choose three natural difficulties and describe them. Then write how your tall tale character solves them using his/her powers. 1st natural difficulty 2nd natural difficulty 3rd natural difficulty 1st solution 2nd solution 3rd solution Step 3 Write your tall tale. You can add drawings. Remember to use linkers: first, then, after that, so, finally. Then share your work with the class.
