The unit can be used for English courses that deal with Black folktales, Black culture, and Black lifestyle. The collection of folktales was also an important aspect of this unit.
There are several ideas in this unit which the teacher can use to get the students intered in folk stories and their own input into the folk system. The methods and applications for student input into the folk system are outlined in the unit. This simply means that once the stories are collected there is a method developed for their application in the classroom.
