              Writing Plan                 
  1. Select a god, goddess, hero, or monster that was studied or read about in your mythology research. 
  2. Brainstorm ideas about the character you chose to help you fill out the graphic organizer.  You may want to refer back to the chart you created or do additional, more in-depth research.
  3. Rough Draft (graphic organizer) due at the beginning of class Friday, May 3rd.
  4. Type your final copy of the bio-poem in a Google Document.  Your page set-up must be landscape and fit on one page; you should try and make your font as large as possible so that each of the ten lines is a big as possible without ruining your format.
