Jeffrey Herring, California State University, Monterey Bay

Capstone Project (B.A.) Liberal Studies Department


A project based endeavor in which the author created an illustrated children's book containing 6 mythological stories from around the world. This book is accompanied by a series of audio dramas (6) which parallel each story, to facilitate the Listening and Speaking CSBE standard for the 3rd grade level. Finally, the author created a language arts based curriculum to accompany each story/audio drama consisting of worksheets, writing assignments, vocabulary enhancers, grammar teaching tools, etc. The unit study format is specifically focused for the home educator, and will be made available online, for free.
