Myths and legends create a mystical, fascinating world. In this program you will write your own myth or legend. To help you do this, you will first explore myths and legends from a range of times and cultures, including ancient Greek, Asian and Aboriginal Australian. You’ll find out how these magical stories originated and their purposes. You’ll decide who were the central characters and why they were important.
To write your own myth or legend, you will work individually or in a group. You might choose to use original ideas or adapt a favourite myth or legend in some manner. Perhaps you’ll convert an ancient myth to modern day times or make major changes to the characters. Something to consider is the contextual setting for your myth or legend. Also, it will be important to ensure your story is sensitive to the audience or its cultural origins.
You can choose how to present your myth. Some examples are acting out a drama, writing a children’s book, producing an artwork or developing a cartoon. At the end of the program, you will be able to present your myth to an audience.
