PRODUCT DESCRIPTION

For this composition grade, students take on the point of view of the character of Polyphemus in the story "The Cyclops." He calls on his father, Poseidon, to punish Odysseus for blinding him, but he himself also committed many atrocities. Students will justify his actions to his father in a creative letter. They write in first person and also use references from the story to back up their point of view (i.e. give an explanation for why the Cyclopses generally do not work together). I've included both peer editing and assessment rubrics.
