Myth and culture assignments for topics in each chapter of Ecce Romani II.
This workbook defines a myth topic and a cultural topic for each chapter in Ecce Romani II. The topics are aligned as closely as possible to the essays included in the book. Myth & culture assignments from this workbook are designed to infuse technology into the curriculum and include writing across the curriculum. For each topic, students are given a set of 10-15 analytical questions and a web page with relevant links which have been vetted for appropriateness. Students research the topic on the links and answer the questions, which require them to synthesize the information they have found and think about comparisions and connections. Where possible, mythological allusions from English poetry, literature and modern culture are incorporated. There are no "right answers" to these assignments, but teachers can grade them according to whatever criteria they like.
