If you missed class on Friday, August 29th

Dear Students,

Remember this, my fine young friends, IF YOU MISS CLASS THEN YOU NEED TO BE RESPONSIBLE FOR THE INFORMATION THAT WAS DISCUSSED and ASSIGNMENTS given during your absence. You are welcome to e-mail me (, check the blog:, [which you are doing now] or visit with a friend). Please be prepared upon your return to save yourselves a significant amount of anguish.


If you missed class on Friday, you missed the following:

1. An explanation for a significant assignment which is due on Wednesday, Sept. 3rd. I will post more details regarding the assignment tomorrow. Each student was assigned a particular god, and then asked to do some research regarding their assigned character. I gave each student some information to begin their research, but asked that one additional source be used to obtain further information. If you are using the Internet to obtain information, I would use ENCYCLOPEDIA MYTHICA as a strong place to begin. You may obtain information from the Internet or another text besides your own.

A. Remember that you MUST include a "Works Cited" page for your sources. I gave each student a handout detailing examples on how to reference different sources.

B. The citation for the source I gave you in class is as follows:
Stoddard, Harrison. Mythology and You. Classical Mythology and its relevance in Today's

world. Chicago, ILL. : Allan and Bacom Publishing, 1982.

2. We completed the yellow chart regarding the gods. You will have a quiz covering this information on Friday. The quiz will consist of pictures of each god, which you must identify. Your must include their Greek and Roman names, symbols not included in the picture, and their domains. I have posted several pictures of the gods below to use as a pre-test. Go through each image and see if you can identify each god by the symbols that are included in the piece of artwork. If you struggle with this, then you know that you'll need to review more for the quiz. I will post the identities to each of the pictures on Wednesday. This post is to assist you will preparing for your quiz. SOME OF THE GODS ARE PICTURED MORE THAN ONCE! Oh, and there are some that I can't omit their identity. So, I would scroll 2/3 of the way down on the image, do your best to identify the god, and then see if you are correct! Remember that this is a pre-test for you, so don't compromise your INTEGRITY, cute kids!

Who are the following gods (Greek and Roman names, symbols that are not included, and domains)? Good luck with this pre-test! May the power of the gods by with you!

Your FINAL exam!

Dear Mythology Kids, It's nice to "see" you again. Let me offer some "study guidance" for your final exam. Please ...
