Owning the Journey: Using Collaborative Revisions of Little Red Riding Hood in Teaching Introduction to Literature at a Historically Black University
Scott, Pauline
CEA Forum, v41 n1 p94-108 Win-Spr 2012
Design and implementation of a collaborative course project, using Little Red Riding Hood (LRRH) to teach and discuss the concepts of orality, cultural legacy, archetypes, adaptation/appropriation, and social criticism in an Introduction to Literature course at Historically Black Alabama State University in Montgomery, Alabama. The student groups are guided through the use of interactive, collaborative strategies in the creation of a group oral presentation that reconfigures the LRRH story in combination with other narratives discussed during the semester in order to convey a message of social criticism. The project encourages students to reclaim or "own" a traditional tale from Western literary tradition by transforming it to communicate a new message.
