If you missed class on Friday, August 26th

Dear Mythology Kids,

I know that several of you missed class due to the assembly. Remember if you are going to miss, then you need to COMMUNICATE with me. I don't have time to repeat each class. I value and venerate those that stopped by before, during, and after school to find out what they missed. If you failed to do this, then CHECK WITH A FRIEND in one of the Mythology classes. Remember to COMMUNICATE with me for the future!

Dear Mythology Kids,

If you missed class today, please make sure you visit with someone else taking Mythology......

Each student received the following:
1. A copy of their textbook, Mythology, by Edith Hamilton

2. A copy of their Homework Coupon ( if you missed class please visit with me about this)

3. Four handouts that were then placed within the notebook

a. a blue handout that is a map of Greece

b. a yellow handout entitled "Tell me a Story"

c. a green handout that is a chart of the Greek gods

d. and a pink handout that will be used for flashcards

(Each handout was placed in the "NOTES" section of the notebook.)


1. Your "What is a Classic" assignment is due on Tuesday!


1. We reviewed some basic information regarding ancient Greece, and then that information was recorded on the blue map given to you at the beginning of class.

a. What is a city-state?

b. The difference between Athens and Sparta (Athena vs. Ares and Aesthetics vs. Warfare)


e. We also discussed the brilliance of the ancient Greeks and how their influence still plays a role in our modern culture.

I look forward to seeing you on Tuesday!

Welcome to the "Jungle"

Dear Mythology Students,
I welcome you to the land of gods and goddesses, where logic does not exist, only the idea that some where in the slime of cosmic confusion order becomes real. Was that poetic? TRANSLATION: Prepare yourself to learn ancient ideas and concepts that are bizarre; yet still relevant and valid in modern times. I welcome you to Mythology.

HOMEWORK for Friday, August 26th:
1. Disclosure Document
2. Supplies with USB drive, 3x5 cards, and markers (remember that the bandage for your mask is not required until I give you further instructions)

HOMEWORK for Tuesday, August 30th
3. "What is a Classic? "

I look forward to working with you this year.

Your FINAL exam!

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