Product Description
This unit is based on the novel Here Lies Arthur by Phillip Reeves. Students will read this novel at the end of our Folklore Unit. The focus of that unit is expose students to the affects of oral tradition and culture on different stories. This unit will extend that understanding by presenting a story of Arthur rarely told. Discussion of whether this story comes from oral tradition and cultural ideals or if this is in fact a "Fractured Legend"; the students will debate why this story of King Arthur has rarely been told. Students will also be introduced to the Hero's Quest/Journey and will analyze how the character of Arthur and the character Gwyna both go through this process. The literary and historical context of the novel will be explored in Language Arts and Social Studies classrooms. Although it requires an understanding of oral tradition, this unit can be used even if you do not teach a formal "Folklore" unit.
