The Myth Ritual Theory and the Teaching of Multicultural Literature
Grapples with the difficult task of helping students differentiate between "myth" as a false belief or lie and "myth" as a cultural phenomenon embedded in sophisticated systems of meaning and action. Outlines four goals for the world mythology unit that help explore this greater sophistication with ninth graders. Concludes that the unit helps students locate themselves within this cultural dynamic.
