Multiculturalism Through African Folk Tales and Mayan Myths
Your feedback is important to us!
After viewing our curriculum units, please take a few minutes to help us understand how the units, which were created by public school teachers, may be useful to others.
During the past two weeks, the students have studied the myths of the African and Mayan peoples. The myths have provided the students with an insight into the cultures’ histories, ideas and beliefs. As a result of the study, the students have gained a knowledge of two cultures that differ from their own, they have experienced aspects of these cultures and they have gained an appreciation for cultural groups outside of their own cultural identity. The final week of the unit will provide the students with an opportunity to put their newly acquired knowledge use. Week three will not only call upon the new information but will also require the students to employ their unique sense of creativity and writing abilities.
