Product Description
A student-led, interactive activity that emphasizes the Common Core Speaking and Listening Standards for grades 8-12. In the format of a talk show, students research and present information about a Greek and Roman god or goddess. Students dress up as and impersonate their deities, do a commercial linked to their deities’ domain, and interact with each other and the student audience.

Each show is 40 to 45 minutes long, with 16 deities paired off for a total of 8 shows.

This unit includes: an assignment sheet that identifies the research and performance tasks; work sheets for deity biographical and bibliographic information; an audience note taking sheet; a suggested pairing and schedule for 16 different gods and goddesses; a list of 6 popular mythology internet sites; a grading rubric for the research and performance tasks completed; a model biography of the Titan Prometheus; a model bibliography for the Prometheus biography; a commercial for a product that Prometheus would endorse; a generic show script for a student announcer and a student show host; a 5 part final mythology examination and test key; a study guide for the final examination; a description of the Greek Underworld; a mapping assignment (and rubric) of the Greek Underworld; a 750 word creative writing assignment, titled “Deity of the Day in the 21st Century“—which requires students to imagine their deities visiting the present day; and a rubric for the students’ modern day deity stories.
