Latin American Folklore

Our 8th Grade students focused on theme, character development, and character traits through Latin American folklore. They read the book Summer of the Mariposas by Guadalupe McCall and  then researched other traditional folklore.  Using that information, they then wrote narratives, modernizing the traditional folklore into current times. Once finished, the students presented them to the class around a fake campfire.
