MTA Freshmen Bring Homer’s ‘Odyssey’ to Life

MTA freshmen put both their English and creativity skills to work and designed innovative projects for their end-of-semester English literature assessment on Homer’s epic poem, “The Odyssey.” The talmidim created board games, brochures, websites and presentations to advertise a travel adventure, as well as movie posters, storyboards and trailers for imagined film adaptations and digital retellings of the epic. “This hands-on, project-based assessment provided the talmidim with an opportunity to utilize the skills they developed in class throughout the semester and bring learning to life,” shared MTA English Department Chair and Instructor Hadassah Siegfried. “Their creativity is inspiring and demonstrates their mastery of all that we have learned together.” Each class also had the chance to showcase their projects to their fellow classmates and teachers, who were all extremely impressed by their hard work and creativity.
