    • Greek Mythology Student Page Title Introduction Task Process Evaluation Conclusion Credits [ Teacher Page ] A WebQuest for 9th Grade English Designed by Brian Lancaster [email_address] Based on a template from The WebQuest Page
    • Introduction Student Page Title Introduction Task Process Evaluation Conclusion Credits [ Teacher Page ] This activity is designed to be a fun and interactive way for you, as the student, to play a role in the Greek myths that we are learning about. As a character in your favorite tale or legend, you will become deeply involved in the reasoning and content of your myth, and you will become more interested and involved in the presentations of the other students. The purpose of this activity is for you to become more involved with the myths that we are learning about, and for you to understand how the myths were created, how the myths were shared, and how they affected the lives of the ancient Greeks.
    • The Task Student Page Introduction Task Process Evaluation Conclusion Credits [ Teacher Page ]
      • Your task is to re-enact a myth from Greek mythology that you are familiar with in front of the class. Try to be creative and original, but maintain the proper storyline, plot, and characters.
      • Upon completion, you will be handing in the following items:
      • A complete script
      • A one-page paper (explained on the next slide)
      • A group evaluation
      • An individual evaluation
