Slow and Steady: Life Lessons Through Stories

Slow and Steady: Life Lessons Through Stories


Aesop’s fables, written over 2000 years ago, hold direct relevance today. Morals do not change; instead, we do. Students write their own fables, exploring their values and deciding what matters to them. In an effort to explain the world around us, students dive into folktales and myths, discovering that the world is a pulsing kaleidoscope, and we can only describe what we think we see.
