Deep Reading: Building a Schematic Bridge across World Mythology and Multicultural Literature

Link: Standard No: ISSN: 1058-9236 Clearinghouse: UD523666

The study of mythology that passes on stories is cultural reproduction. By focusing primarily on classical Greek and Roman mythology, teachers handicap students' ability to enter into dialogue about more diverse literature, thus limiting their ability to live more fully in today's diverse, multicultural world. A bibliographic case study of the African and African American trickster is presented.
