This is the assignment and rubric I use to get students to write their own myth. I use it in the beginning of the year after reading Native American myths in our American Literature text book. Because Native American literature is based on oral tradition, I have them tell their stories out loud, and do not grade thier grammar for this assignment. I usually let them choose to work with a partner, or by themselves. I give them a class period to write thier myths, and we present the next day.
