Paper Topic
Read the stories of Theseus and Perseus. Then pick one of
them to write about. Your task is to identify the journey (or journeys)
that your selected hero completed. Don’t retell the whole story of the
journey(s), but describe what you think the hero learned from the
experience(s). Then describe a similar kind of journey that you’ve
completed or that you’re currently on and write about what you’ve learned from
the ‘trek’ (think metaphorically about this part of the task). If you
haven’t been on any journeys similar to any of the journeys of Perseus or
Theseus, describe how you might set up a situation for yourself that would
enable you to undertake such a journey. What would expect or hope to
learn on that journey?
