The lesson I wrote for the iBook is on identifying components of familiar stories/legends and comparing those with Alaska Native stories from the Southcentral region. The culminating project of the lesson is for students to write their own story incorporating character traits and values from two different cultures.

In the blog post accompanying your lesson/unit plan, please describe the cultural standard you believe is most clearly linked to your plan and explain how your plan embodies the spirit of that cultural standard.
The cultural standards truly represented in the lesson plan is D1:
The student draws parallels between knowledge derived from oral tradition and that derived from books.
In the lesson students will be comparing oral stories and written stories. The oral stories come from the Alaska Native perspective, and the written stories are western or other stories that students are already familiar with. By dissecting the stories into their character traits and story values, the students can derive the knowledge from said stories.
