The assignment that was given on Friday......

This is the assignment that was given to each student on Friday, August 29th. You should be able to copy this as a "Word" document and print it off. Each student was assigned a god, and then asked to do some research regarding that deity. I gave each student some information to assist them with their research, and then required that they also find at least one other additional source. TWO STUDENTS missed class on Friday (Cory and Tucker). You two need to stop by my room on Tuesday in order to obtain the information I gave each student concerning their god. Cory you are researching HERA, and Tucker you are researching APOLLO.
