This is a cooperative-group writing assignment, usually done in pairs. My students do this after reading The Odyssey. The outline helps them organize their thoughts before writing. It could also easily be used as an individual writing assignment. This document includes a description of what a myth is (it can be copied and passed out to each student or enlarged to hang on a classroom wall), the outline/brainstorm, and a peer survey sheet that allows students to "grade" themselves and their partners.
