Do you need to teach a lesson about African oral tradition and griots? This lesson is SOOOOOO much fun! The lesson includes bell work and a great overview of oral traditions and griots. Then, students will real an African story called Anansi the Spider and answer questions about the story. Lastly, students will participate in a final assessment where they pretend they are a griot and think of story of their own. What better way to teach students about oral tradition and griots than having them become one. This is too fun.
