1.3 Learning community discussion

Think about Peter’s telling of “How the praying mantis got its name”.

  • Which version did you enjoy more?
  • Or did you enjoy both for different reasons?
  • Why do you think you feel like this about the told story and the written story?
  • Would you have liked an English translation of Peter’s second story?
  • Why do you think we did not provide one?
  • How important do you think fantasy is in developing a child’s understanding?

Discuss the questions you have listed for “Die seun wie konnie sing nie” with your colleagues. How could they be improved?
