Synopsis:

Part of the “Longman Topics” reader series, Translating Tradition examines how we engage in traditions as family and community members to connect with past, negotiate the present, and envision the future.

This brief collection of readings focuses on the value of folklore's role in shaping our lives. Thought-provoking selections ask students to think about important issues: family heirlooms and family legacies; preserving family and community history through story; cross cultural traditions. Divided into seven chapters, each features six essays of varying lengths. Brief apparatus helps students write more thoughtfully in response to the selections and think more critically about the role of tradition in society.

“>Longman Topics” are brief, attractive readers on a single complex, but compelling topic. Featuring about 30 full-length selections, these volumes are generally half the size and half the cost of standard composition readers. Beardslee Translating_Tradition SMP Page 1 of 1
