Product Description

In this eight day, CCSS-aligned Myth Writing Unit, students will demonstrate an understanding of the myth genre as they write their own myths. The unit begins with a review of the characteristics of myths and student analysis of a sample myth. Then, following a step-by-step process that includes pre-writing, writing, revising, editing, conferencing, and then writing a final copy, students will write an original and creative myth. In this unit students create a myth that creatively presents an explanation of an unknown. In addition, students’ myths will be filled with genre characteristics as well as strong voice and word choice.

This unit is a perfect addition to a myth study unit , an Ancient Greece unit, or as a stand alone writing unit.
