English II Wiki Assignment
Create a wiki on your assigned Greek god or hero. You will research the story of your god or hero and then summarize the main details by summing up their actions, conflicts, challenges, accomplishments, etc. You need to do this in YOUR OWN WORDS. It is very important that you don’t plagiarize. Specific things you need to include in your wiki are:

1. Some sort of physical description of your god/hero and their background (summary of their actions, accomplishments, defeats, etc.)
2. Any powers that your god/hero possess
3. What other gods, heroes, and creatures does your god/hero come across?
4. At least 3 pictures of your god/hero
5. A minimum of 5 links (we’ll go over how this is done)
6. Any special weapons, objects, or magical items they used
7.
Symbols in society that were derived from your god/hero (where does your god/hero appear outside of the world of mythology)
8. Any words (in any language) that evolved from the name of your god/hero
9. Any businesses, groups, organizations named after your god/hero? (What comes up when you google their name?)
10. You will need to reference at least 1 book
11. Consider your opinion of the god/hero. Do you respect them? Would you be friends with them? What qualities do you respect or despise? Answering these questions will serve as a way of summing up your wiki and sharing your view on your god/hero.

It is important that you use proper grammar and spelling as you will be graded on these aspects as well.
