Objectives for each lesson depend on the story, fable, myth, or legend selected. Further, the age, maturity, and abilities of students dictate which objectives are most appropriate for a lesson. The activities will: 1. Improve students’ understanding of complex social issues. 2. Help students develop decision-making skills through analysis of the characters’ actions. 3. Enable students to understand the emotional involvement resulting from their decisions. 4. Provide a means for students to practice synthesiz- ing material presented in the stories
