Oklahoma! The Cultural Myth of America

Learners explore cultural myths in America by collecting images and characteristics of stereotypical Americans. They read a primary source document, discussing the views of the author in class. Next, they compare the terms used to describe Americans in the document to their list with Venn Diagram. Finally, they view Oklahoma! and assess the American image represented in the musical. Young historians can then complete a writing assignment based on the comparisons. Extensions included.
