In this activity, students will read a translation of the 6th century poem “Ode to Mulan” and watch the 1998 Disney animated movie Mulan (rated G). Students will work through the handout to show how a modern work draws from traditional stories and renders it new. This lesson is projected to take three hours, including movie viewing time. It specifically addresses 8th grade standard CCSS.ELA-LITERACY.RL.8.9, but also applies to 9th and 10th grade standard CCSS.ELA-LITERACY.RL.9-10.9.
