What's On the Eschatology Unit Test?
Format: multiple choice, matching, T/F. If you are absent, you will have NO MORE than three days to make it up, so please do not be absent.
HW #11 (25 points)Write a 25+ line poem (any type! Found, Rhyming, Sonnet, Ballad, etc.) OR a one page, SINGLE SPACED first person point of view of Hades inspired by our eschatological unit.* Incorporate the characters and places you have learned about. See the Margaret Atwood poems for inspiration. Please print for class to show/tell and submit to turnitin where I will grade. CLASS ID: 14875997 and password is gokturk.
Guidelines/ideas for a narrative rather than poem: To Hades and Back. Select a famous person or imagine a strong voice. Please write a first person account of “your” descent to Hades, through Hades and your return. The narrator could be you, a fictional human, or any likely character we’ve met so far (especially from the Underworld). It is especially amusing to use a famous person.Use the details of the Hades landscape. Try to reveal as many of the details as possible. Use the present tense or the past tense. Whichever you choose, please be consistent. Dialogue is nice but not required. Use sensory description so we feel, see, smell, and hear what it’s like in Hades. Organize into paragraphs. Your goal is to create a dominant impression based on your interpretation of the Underworld.
I know it sounds odd, but I like the format: single spaced, landscaped, two columns
*If you are a singer, you can record a song instead. If you are an artist, you can create a work of art instead, but also include an explanation describing what you did and how.
