A project for students to explore common allusions in mythology and the Bible in AP English Literature. This activity is best done at the beginning of the school year, so that students can make connections back to these stories as they read. Students are assigned a story from mythology or the Bible, research it, and create a presentation over it for the class. This allows students to gain a broad overview of many common allusions without much class time spent on each one.
Includes project instructions for students, and a list for teachers of common allusions, a brief summary of the allusion, and a place to write down the student's name who is assigned that story.
