2. Drama of Mythology
This could carry on from the last lesson. Because I teach in an Arts School, this is easier for me to accomplish, but students in all classrooms could do this. Students like to act out what they write. They can use a combination narrative/dialogue form and present their stories as plays.
In connection with our theater department, I would also try to include some of the adventures in the Underworld, especially the tests in the Houses, and use the great ugly gods with their wonderful ugly names as characters. Students would have fun creating the masks to go along with the names of the gods and have a good time understanding the Popol Vuh.
