Identify and discuss one of the characteristics of epic reflected in the Epic of Gilgamesh.
Select one life event embedded in the Epic of Gilgamesh and compare it with one in modern life.
Task 1: Create a new discussion topic on or before the required date/time by clicking the ‘**REPLY HERE**’ post. Develop a substantive main thread addressing each part of the prompt in full. Your initial thread should be 2-3 paragraphs in length (200+ words total). Support your points with examples or illustrations from the text. Quotations/citations are not strictly required, but MLA style should be used if quoting or paraphrasing from the literature or outside sources. Review the How-To Guide: MLA Formatting and Citations page (linked in class) as needed.
Task 2: After you have created and posted your main response, you are then required to read and respond to a minimum of 2 of your classmate’s discussion posts. All substantive replies count, whether it be replies to several classmates’ main post, or multiple replies to a single classmate (substantive replies to your professor would also count for credit). Think of your responses in terms of a contribution to an ongoing academic dialogue. Incorporate what you have learned from the weekly reading material and from your own real-world experiences. Again, don’t forget to use proper MLA documentation whenever necessary.
