IMPORTANT:  You are advised to follow the deadlines on the calendar as closely as possible so that you do not fall behind.  

 

Part One:  Traditional Heroes

1. The first part of the assignment is to read a number of Greek, Roman, and Egyptian myths that tell stories of heroes and heroines.  From those readings, search for patterns and common elements between the stories, including:

i) How a hero is defined in those stories

ii) What does the hero do in the story? 

ii) What makes that character a hero in the story?

iii) What makes it possible for that character to become a hero? 

2. Provide a written response to these questions for at least one of each type (Greek, Roman, Egyptian) of myth that you read. 

3. Create your own one-page myth that includes the common elements that you found in the first part of this assignment.

 

This assignment should be completed by Thursday, October 29th.

Part Three: Modern Heroes

Your assignment is to choose someone who you consider to be a modern-day hero and create a two page written work on who that person is and why they are a hero.

Some possible assignment options:

  • a two page comic
  • a bristol board collage of images, deeds, and a short biography
  • a short slide show with narrative
  • a newspaper front page, cd cover (and song list), or short scrapbook (no more than 5 pages)

 

Recalling how it was claimed that Superman was the kind of hero needed in the United States during the late 1930s, what kind of hero do you think is needed for modern day Canada?
