In this lesson students will compare the themes and events in myths from different cultures. Students will begin the lesson by reading the myth of Perseus and Medusa from ancient Greece. They will then read an English myth called the Glass Knight. The students will use a Venn diagram to compare and contrast the two stories. Then the students will use the myth planning sheet and lined paper to write their own myth. Once they have written their myth they will add it to the third circle of the Venn diagram and compare their myth to the other two. Along with comparing and contrasting these myths, students will review the elements of literature when they are planning their own myth. Everything is in a word document so feel free to change it to meet your needs.
