Each day, we will enjoy learning about one of the Greek Myths through a reader's theater script and then read a 'mangled' or fractured version of the myth. We will then compare the two versions and brainstorm other ways to 'mangle' the myth. Learners will then have the opportunity to write their own version of the myth after class on Day 4 to share on Day 5 (optional!) An example of a mangled myth is when Medusa has gummy worms instead of snakes for hair. The mangled myth twists bring humor...
Students will read the myth script with sufficient accuracy and fluency to support their comprehension while learning to speak clearly at an understandable pace. Specifically, we will target fluency skills through accuracy, rate, phrasing and expression. To increase comprehension, students will compare and contrast two versions of a myth. As outlined below, the activities in this class are aligned to the Common Core State Standards for grades 3-6 Reading: Literature: Range of Reading and Level of Text Complexity: CCSS.ELA-Literacy.RL.3.10, CCSS.ELA-Literacy.RL.4.10, CCSS.ELA-Literacy.RL.5.10 By the end of the year, read and comprehend literature, including stories, dramas, and poetry, at the high end of the text complexity band independently and proficiently. Reading: Foundational Skills: Fluency: CCSS.ELA-Literacy.RF.3.4, CCSS.ELA-Literacy.RF.4.4, CCSS.ELA-Literacy.RF.5.4 Read with sufficient accuracy and fluency to support comprehension. Speaking & Listening: Presentation of Knowledge and Ideas: CCSS.ELA-Literacy.SL.3.4, CCSS.ELA-Literacy.SL.4.4, CCSS.ELA-Literacy.SL.5.6, CCSS.ELA-Literacy.SL.6.6 Report on a topic or text, tell a story, or recount an experience with appropriate facts and relevant, descriptive details, speaking clearly at an understandable pace.
Students will have the opportunity to write their own creative version of the myth on Day 4.
A pdf of each script will be provided each day. (Scripts are written by TP Jagger and are used with express written permission.)
Learners will not need to use any apps or websites beyond the standard Outschool tools.
3 hours 45 minutes per week in class, and an estimated 0 - 1 hours per week outside of class.
