After a short study of Native American myth and a viewing of the film "Avatar," students can use this guide to trace connections between the two. The guide looks at "Avatar" as modern day myth, archetypes that are featured in both, historical connections, and mythic connections. The guide focuses on critical thinking (no rote memory or multiple choice questions) and asks students to think and write about their experience with myth and the film. There is no answer key, as this guide is focused on discussion and higher order thinking. This guide is used with 11th-12th grade honors and AP students.
