You have been keeping your Myaamia Dictionary Journal for a while now and have probably learned to speak some Myaamia too. Choose one of the Mission, Vision, Values statements from Lesson 13, Language Theatre. Write in the Myaamia language a children’s story that expresses that value. Don’t forget to add illustrations! As you are working consider how you would share your finished story with someone younger than you to teach them about Myaamia values and the Myaamia language.
Think about your culture and how you have learned about your culture over the course of your life. Consider each of these cultural aspects and describe, to the best of your knowledge, how your culture addresses each one and how you learned about each one. For example, what foods do you eat? How did you learn to try those foods? If you identify with more than one culture, you can choose one or answer for multiple cultures.
