Mythology Across Time and Borders: Online Workshop. ArtsEdge Curricula, Lessons and Activities.
Clement, Lynne Boone
This curriculum unit can be adapted for students as young as grade 6 or 7 and as old as grade 12. The unit integrates writing process instruction, storytelling lore, mythology, and arts instruction and is in support of standards as defined by the Consortium of National Arts Education Associations and the National Council of Teachers of English. Each of the three lessons in the unit has been planned for a 45-50 minute instructional period, but it is not necessary to follow the lessons in linear fashion. The unit was designed to be implemented through a blend of traditional classroom writing process instruction and Internet exchange. It intends that students will explore their own cultural identity while learning vital aspects of the writing process. The unit provides an overview, lists equipment and materials needed, posits essential questions, discusses relevant standards, and outlines content acquisition. Student handouts are attached. (NKA)
