Poseidon Adventure: Home

Poseidon Adventure -- Focus

I have been motivated by the exhibit at the museum to embark on a research project that is cohesive with the exhibit. Your challenge is to find an area that you care to research for this project and present your work in a written piece and a presentation.

The Main Idea we are investigating is:

How the Poseidon Myth is reflected in …………… (See the following) during a certain area or time period.

  • Mythology
  • Fashion
  • Oceanography
  • Literature
  • Geography
  • Etymology
  • Religion
  • Language
  • Music
  • Style (hair, makeup)
  • Entertainment
  • Architecture
  • Names
  • Values
  • Government
  • Transportation 

You need to determine the area that most interests you after a period of brainstorming on the computer.

The next step is to FOCUS on a topic be careful it is not too broad or too narrow. Using the journalism method –Who? What? Where? When? And Why?-will help you identify what you u need to do.

Next you need to develop the research question or argument. See handout for further ideas on development.
