This is a final project to be used following The Odyssey. It includes a discussion of satire, the satirical elements in Shrek, a video clip from The Simpsons, the assignment sheet, and rubric.
As is typical of the The Simpsons, in the video there are some jokes that you might not deem appropriate for your students. Be sure to preview the video clip. However, I’ve never had a problem with my 9th graders, and this project tends to be one of their favorites from year to year.
Getting the project started will take one class period. You can give students 2-3 days in class to complete it or assign it as homework. It will take 1-2 days for them to present their projects as well.
I also have Odyssey Vocabulary in my store as another resource for teaching The Odyssey.
