Retell (or write) a story you heard growing up (such as a fairy tale, ghost story, or fable) and identify the type of narrative. Is it a myth (a sacred narrative about origins), legend (supposed true story with a moral message), or tale (story created for entertainment that often has a moral message)? What function did this story play in your life or that of your family? Do you plan to tell it to your own children or younger family members? Why or why not? Cultural messages change meaning or relevance over time. Is this story still relevant?
