Go to this Padlet Link:   http://arvadahigh.padlet.org/jsnelson2/eywtd692r4a9

     code:  mythwords

For the word you've been assigned, create a Padlet, Googleslide, Prezi or other digital media presentation to cover the following 4 categories for your word:

     *  Word  (part of speech) and Definitions

     *   Etymology:   Greek origin and brief explanation connecting the Greek/ Roman myth to the modern                   meaning of the word

      *  Synonyms and connotations

      *  Images and Quotes / fun facts 

Make your presentation INTERESTING!  - visually and in terms of content.  Cite sources:  MLA.  Use Easybib.com


You will present this to the class!  Value:  100 pts

B:  Contains all four elements.  Content is accurate but brief.  Pictures and quotes fit the basic context of the word.  Sources other than online dictionaries are cited.  Slides contain few/ minor spelling or logic errors.  Effort at appealing design is apparent.


C:  Contains three out of four elements.  Content may contain a few errors.  One or more sections is incomplete or vague, or unclear.   Attempt at citing sources is present, but in need of editing.  Design/ layout shows lack of organization.


D:  Contains three out of four elements, but content contains errors, with two or more sections being incomplete.  Spelling errors are obvious.  Sources are not cited/ citations are URL's. Design makes it difficult to appreciate presentation.  (ie, text is yellow) Presenter is not finished in time to present to class.  (Tues 3/1/16)
