Greek Talk Shows

"Come On Eirene"

Working in groups, students took a Greek myth and turned it into a talk show. They identified the main conflict from the myth to highlight. Then, they decided on one person in the group to be the host while the other became characters from the myth and guests on the show. The students to also understand the character they were playing and act in the same way the character would. Students had to try to figure out a way to solve the story's conflict. Students traveled on 3 days to the local TV studio where we used their set to tape the talk shows. Students edited their videos, adding a front page and commercials. Students chose to name their show "Come On Eirene" - Eirene is the goddess of peace.
