about the relationship between language, culture, and diversity.

Explore this site, perusing folktales from different cultures: http://www.aaronshep.com/stories/folk.html
Find 2-3 folktales that you see as connected in some way (for example, they reflect similar, or very
different, cultural values; or they rely on similar themes and/or imagery).

Determine what you can say about the relationship between language, culture, and diversity, drawing from both the proverbs and folk tales to support your claims.

Write a 2-3 page (double-spaced) analysis paper about the relationship between language, diversity,
and culture, based on your analysis of the proverbs and folk tales. Structure your paper using the
below guideline:

 INTRODUCTION (1 paragraph): Include a thesis statement where you make a claim

 BODY (3-4 paragraphs): Write 1-3 paragraphs using your analysis of proverbs to support your argument, and 1-3 paragraphs using your analysis of folk tales to support your
argument. Organize your paragraphs in the order that makes most logical sense.
 CONCLUSION (1 paragraph): Restate your thesis. Explain why thinking about language
helps us understand and value diversity.
