The Ramayana: India's Odyssey.
Fuchs, Gaynell M.; Lynn, Thomas J.
This curriculum guide demonstrates how the "Ramayana," one of India's epic literary treasures, can be used in a literature unit in English classes for ninth-grade students. The unit incorporates a useful comparison to the Greek epic, the "Odyssey." Included in this curriculum guide are the following sections: the text (an English version of the Ramayana); a map; notes to accompany the text; notes to the teacher; teaching the "Odyessey" and the "Ramayana"; "Cultural values embodied by characters in the "Ramayana" and the "Odyssey": a comparative analysis): (by Thomas J. Lynn); guide questions for the "Ramayana"; vocabulary (English words requiring definition); assignments for the unit (including writing topics, telling the story to others, and composition topics); similes, metaphors, and personifications in the "Ramayana"; a test for the "Ramayana" unit; and some cut-outs which can be used to create Ramayana dolls.
