Today we began our own Indian Why story to explain how something has come to be... ie: how leopard got his spots or how porcupine has sharp quills. NOT science's story of DNA, mutation, evolution, and adaptation but rather a creative story of your own design. Tonight be sure to have a rough draft of your story finished to share and edit tomorrow in class. Be creative. Remember the native story telling tradition gives human qualities to animals and often will have Old Man or Elder Brother or Sister Earth. Be sure your story has interest: developing characters, rising action, climax/conflict, resolving action. Know that you will need to do editing and revising tomorrow and it's OKAY!!! If you were gone and need more guidance for this task either email me, call a friend, or come visit during home base study hall on Thursday! NEED MOTIVATION? CLICK HERE FOR NATIVE DRUM MUSIC. Perfect to set the mood and get writing. Have a completed draft done!
Tomorrow we edit/revise and then final story is due Friday. Storytelling is an oral tradition so will you share?
