Why was she in class, Crampton? Well we read the myth entitled "Arachne," which was the ancient Greek version of how spiders were formed.
We also did the following:
1. Reviewed the myths of "Prometheus," "Pandora," and "Demeter" prior to each student receiving their "take-home" quiz covering those myths, which is due on Wednesday.
1. Please read the myths of "Echo and Narcissus," (I gave everyone a copy of this myth in class; however, you can read the version in your textbook), "Daphne and Apollo" (pgs. 119-120), and "Io" (pg. 78-81).
2. You will have a quiz covering these myths on Wednesday.
