This product includes an SBAC style performance task for use with Homer's "The Odyssey." In the task, students are asked to write an argument essay about whether or not Odysseus is a hero.
The product also includes a planning sheet for student use.
This can be used with both a kids version of The Odyssey (for lower grades) or with the "real" version of the text in high school. It works well for both history and English classes.
