Bring your mythology study into the 21st Century with this creative advertising project fully editable in Microsoft Word.
Zeus has enlisted the help of his gods/goddesses (your students) to create and market a fictitious product that mortals cannot live without. (Zeus’s LED Light Bulbs? Hermes’ Messenger Service? Aphrodite’s Skin Care Collection?)
Students (independently or in a group) will...
1. Choose a god/goddess
2. Research his/her attributes or symbols
3. Create a product with a slogan (students can research advertising and slogans in class or as homework)
4. Share an advertising poster or commercial for this product with the class
This creative assignment includes a rubric/checklist to guide students through the process. The project can be done in pairs or groups and include research in advertising and marketing. Teachers may even consider a film component where students create a 30 second commercial or radio spot for the product.
If Zeus is only going to choose one product in which to invest, then students could vote for their "fan favorite" of all projects presented.
This assignment need not be restricted to Greek mythology.
