Read "Persephone" as another example of a myth. I am texting you for the essay topics as well as for a discussion on common characteristics of myths. 

Good presentations today! Well done groups! If you are presenting tomorrow, be ready. Three groups will now go on Wednesday due to a track event.

Today in class we worked on presentations while viewing about 20 more minutes of The Odyssey. Presentations start on Monday and we will have 2 presentations per day. Remember you are to take notes during the presentations and we will have an open book test at the end of the presentations.


I also collected the work on “Theseus and the Minotaur” to make comments on for you. I will be assigning a different reading that will be marked. “Theseus and the Minotaur” is for me to let you know what I (and the markers of the OSSLT) are looking for.


Finally, I handed out an article called “Mythology”. You are to read and make notes/highlight key points on this article. Your focus for your notes is the question: “Is this a valid article? / What makes a credible source of information when researching?” I have a story to share after you are done this. You have 2 MSIP periods to work on this as we have class last on Monday.

Work on your individual slides so you can start building the master slide show tomorrow with your group members. Start practicing what you want to say and complete your Works Cited Page.

NOTE: This post is an error. It was originally sent to be posted on Wednesday, April 12 and is the homework from that day. A delay in the email system that posts work to this blog caused it to be posted on April 16 rather than the correct date. I will discuss in class tomorrow.

Two things to work on: 

1. Hero's journey - read article and write down how a story you know fits the structure of the hero's journey.

2. Slide Show- individual part is due on Tuesday. I really like seeing those of you who are taking notes on lined paper!
