Greek Mythology Close Read & Argument Writing:
This assignment is adapted from Olivia Coolidge's retelling of the Greek Myth "Origin of the Seasons."
I adapted this assignment so that it focuses on close reading CCSS skills.
This reading will ask students to: look for characterization techniques, dramatic irony, personification, similes, make inferences, summarize as well as identify examples of cause/effect throughout the text.
Also included is an argumentative paragraph activity and template that will ask your students to use textual-evidence to support a given claim.
