The Story of Rama (Curriculum Unit)

Objective: Through the study of the Story of Rama, students experience how the literary, visual, and performing arts can provide a lens through which to understand the world—and to reflect on their own identities and world views.

The Story of Rama (the Ramayana), about a prince and his long hero’s journey, is one of the world’s great epics. It began in India and spread among many countries throughout Asia. Its text is a major thread in the culture, religion, history, and literature of millions. Use selection of activities, videos, and works of art to explore the epic of Rama with your students.
