Product Description
For this paper, the students write a paper proving that Odysseus is a Greek Epic hero based on the characteristics he possesses.

This PDF document includes the following:

Page 1: Epic Hero Cycle sheet that students fill in as they read the novel. They use it to write their paper.

Page 2:Student overview of how to write the paper

Page 3-4: Example paper over the movie HERCULES. I do this because we watch part of the movie and if I write it over the Odyssey, they copy it!

The paper has an introduction and one body paragraph with in text citations and a Works Cited example. I do not require direct quotations for this paper, so they paraphrase. They are still required to do citations.

Page 5-6: Two page rubric with the following categories: Introduction, Body paragraph 1, 2, 3, Conclusion, Grammar, Formatting and Works Cited.

If you have any questions, let me know!
