This creative writing assignment allows the students to apply their knowledge of the epic form to their own short epic. Their version must have the same attributes-ie. gods/goddesses, conflict, a hero or heroine, appositives, etc. I am also including the rubric I use--it is based 100% on the assignment, so there are no surprises for the kids. This is a fun one! I've had kids use the school, baseball fields, the mall, outer space, etc. for their settings.
