The Odyssey- Persuasive Characterization Paragraph

This assignment fits with common core standards and benchmarks for quarter 2 grade 9. After reading and completing learning activites associated with The Odyssey (select books), this was an assessment to see if students understood Odysseus' character, and how to respond to a persuasive prompt. My students wrote 11 sentence Jane Schaffer paragraphs. They responded to the prompt: "In Homer's The Odyssey, is Odysseus a heroic character? Use evidence from the story to support your claim." The attached rubric was used to assess this assignment and was created for my PBS teacherline class. #VegasPBS-INST325
