This is a fun, multi-media project for high school students who are studying Beowulf or a similar story with an epic hero. Students will choose a "modern day" epic hero to compare the qualities of the traditional epic hero in the story. A free app for the ipad or smart phone is needed for the project. The students always love the day when we "showcase" their final projects! I typically spend part of the class period explaining the assignment and showing a few examples. (Don't give too many examples, or you might take their idea!) Then I give the students part of the hour to brainstorm and work on the worksheet. I have included a rubric which you are welcome to edit for your use.
