Before reading The Odyssey students create a poster depicting their hero. The project includes specific requirements that focus on the characteristics of a modern hero. The posters make a great bulletin board that can be referred to while reading The Odyssey to compare modern day heroes and heroes that were respected by the Ancient Greeks.
The assignment includes a checklist, rubric and example poster.
This assignment and other engaging activities can also be purchased in our The Odyssey Unit Teacher’s Bundle.
