Tamamo no Mae

As a general rule and a general work ethic, I seek to differentiate instruction in a way that at times amounts to individualizing it, especially where student interest is present, and especially at this time of year, when students are running out of steam and focus. Over the past couple of weeks, therefore, I have researched and composed some material for a pair of students (to wit, these two worksheets on the Video game Overwatch) and for a single students who has conceived an interest in Japanese mythology.

For that teenager, I wrote this reading comprehension worksheet on Tamamo no Mae, who is a goddess in the Japanese pantheon. If you want to use this worksheet with your students, you’ll need to direct them to this reading on Tamamo no Mae, which is a page on the yokai.com website.
