MythologyThis fall in the 6th grade we are learning about the structures and patterns of mythology. We started our ELA work in Greco-Roman mythology while ADLE explored the Mayan Popol Vuh. We will soon be bridging the work that students have been doing in ADLE and ELA to begin comparative analysis of the archetypes, values, and beliefs represented through the storytelling tradition of the cultures. Moving on from that, we will begin examining the influence that the archetypes from these early cultures have had on fairy tales, folktales, and other traditional literature as well as on modern texts.
