Product Description
As a concluding activity for our Mythology unit, students conduct a large research project about a major Greek mythological figure. This project has three phases:

1) Learning Research Methodology;
2) Writing Research Paper;
3) Presenting Information to Class.

Each of the three phases has a different assignment page and rubric.



Phase I: Research

Students will conduct research on an assigned mythological figure, using information from 1+ book(s) and 2+ online sources. Five research questions will guide their search:

1) Who is your mythological figure, and what were they known for?
2) What does your figure look like, and what tools or symbols did they use?
3) Where does your mythological figure fall on the family tree?
4) What are the major myths in which your figure was featured?
5) Did your figure help answer any universal questions for ancient Grecians?

Students will learn about research methodology and how to use reliable sources from books and online databases. We will discuss directly quoting vs. summarizing or paraphrasing research, as well as plagiarism and the importance of citing our sources using MLA formatting.



Phase II: Research Paper

Students will compose a five paragraph research paper, correctly formatted using the conventions learned about academic essays last semester. Essay should fluidly incorporate research findings through both direct quotations and summary of information from various sources, as well as correct in-text citations.



Phase III: Presentation

Students will dress up as their mythological figure and present in the first-person, using one visual aid to help the class understand the figure better. Students may use notecards throughout the presentation, which should last 3-5 minutes and should be well-rehearsed and fluid
