Student Projects: In place of a long term paper (five to seven typed pages), students are given the option of interpreting the literature through a visual medium.   These visuals must be of their own creation, relate to the literature we have read this semester, and be accompanied by a shorter paper (at least three typed pages).  Students have come up with a variety of ways to interpret our stories.  Some have created web pages or put together books and cartoon features.  Others have demonstrated their ingenuity with pottery, jewelry, architectural renditions, and papermache masks or artifacts.  Most popular are paintings of characters and events. The following are some examples for Classical Mythology.  Accompanying the reproduction of each student's artwork is a summary of the story or quotations from the student's paper that specify the connections between the art and the student's interpretation of the myth.
