Mythology Story Presentation Background: You will understand the epic poem The Odyssey much better if you have a working knowledge of the gods and goddesses. We will spend some time researching and presenting the many gods and goddesses.
Your Task: Research, take notes, and present a speech about your assigned mythology story. You are expected to be creative, correct, and neat with your project. Research is a component of this project. You must spend some time researching your topic and gathering information to share with the class.
