Urban Legends and Tall Stories August 2, 2006

Posted by Myke Bartlett in CSC 2006 Classwork Archives.

A tall story is a story that is greatly exaggerated and not entirely true. In other words, Urban Legends tend to be Tall Stories. Today we’ll look at some Urban Legends and discover a little more about where they come from. As we learned yesterday, a lot of Urban Legends have a grain of truth in them. Remember this when you come to write your own Urban Legends.

Write your own Urban Legend in a post on your blog. If you finish, go look at other people’s blogs and comment on how believable you think their story is. Be constructive and polite!
