Introduction to the monsters, lesser gods and heroes of Mythology

Dear Mythology Students,

1. You were.iintroduced to a research assignment regarding the lesser gods and monsters of Mythology.

Note: Each student selected TWO characters that are their research subjects.


. 1.Depending on your chosen characters, each student will locate information at home via the Internet. Please DO NOT USE Wikipedia as a source. I would suggest ENCYCLOPEDIA MYTHICA as a stronger option. Some students elected to work with a partner, while others want to work independently. Which ever choice was made, two characters are the focus for the research. PLEASE PRINT OFF the INTERNET sources that you found useful in providing information about your characters. I will look at your Internet sources on WEDNESDAY. In addition, you need to ANNOTATE (using Orange for B1, B4 and Green for B2) information that is important to the mythological hero associated with your characters.

2. Compile a list of the points you found interesting in association with your characters. Please type the list using MLA format.

3. Please include a works cited page indicating your Internet source(s).

Your assignment is due at the beginning of class on Thursday. We will go to the library so that you can extend your research.


Your FINAL exam!

Dear Mythology Kids, It's nice to "see" you again. Let me offer some "study guidance" for your final exam. Please ...
