7 a.m. REVIEW SESSION....Monday, October 26th

Don't forget to attend the 7 a.m. review session on Monday, October 26th. If I'm the only individual in my room on Monday at 7 a.m., then "HELL HATH NO FURY LIKE KORI CRAMPTON SCORNED!" Ha

"Luck favors the mind that is prepared."

Hello, Mythology Students,

The above quote is by Louis Pasteur. If you aren't familiar with Pasteur he was the French scientist credited with identifying the science of Microbiology. He also discovered a cure for Rabies. He clearly was a clever gentleman, and I would agree that his quote has merit!
-Louis Pasteur-
Are you PREPARING for your exam? I hope that you have made the choice to complete your review and now you are looking at the example questions that I have included on the blog. If so I am proud of you. I have no doubt that you will you succeed on the test. Good luck on the following set of images.

1. What is being depicted in this ancient sketch. You should mention the male
and female by name.

2. Identify this lovely lady. The fruit she is holding is a strong clue as to her identity.

3. What is taking place in this sketch. In your response, you will need to identify the female character.

4. Who is this Greek god (Greek and Roman names, please).

5. I LOVE THIS PAINTING, because I feel the artist truly captures the emotion behind this myth. Identify the three individuals in this image; two are female, one is a male. Notice that the male is carrying one of the females, and that the other female has her arms stretched out, as if she is anxiously anticipating the second female's return.

6. Identify this Greek god (Greek and Roman names, please).

7. Who is this character? Please include both Greek and Roman names. What were his domains?

8. Identify the human character in this sketch (Greek and Roman names, please).

9. Who is this Greek god? In addition, explain the myth concerning the symbol depicted behind her.

10. What is this? Identify the characters associated with this symbol and in what capacity. How is this ancient symbol relevant to people living in the 21st century?

I will look forward to seeing you on MONDAY (at 7 a.m.)!
Best Wishes,

I am happy to give you extra-credit if you choose to "take on" the role of a Greek character we have studied as your Halloween persona. Take a picture, and then send me a copy of it; it's that simple. If you need some ideas, please feel free to ask me....happy creating!
