Students will explore different types of myths including indigenous myths, the journey of a Ponderosa Pine from a pine cone, and local folk tales. We will play with forms beyond the written word like origami and theater as we develop our myths. Students will engage in collective and personal storytelling—ultimately culminating in students writing their own origin stories.
Students will write their own origin story. Depending on the class, the last class will be dedicated to writing a creation story for a class anthology or group performance.
