Dear Mythology Kids,

STOP MISSING CLASS! Please make sure you find out what you missed, so you are not behind upon your return.

1. Students took their "Application Quiz" and then we corrected it.
2. We had a brief introduction to the first two explanatory myths entitled "Prometheus" and "Pandora." Students were given copies of the myths and then asked not to read them, as we will read them together in class on Wednesday.
3. Students were asked to respond to the following journal entry, as it relates to the above two explanatory myths.  

 Journal #1 entitled "Hope"
Please consider the following quote by Freidrich Nietzsche. "Hope is the worst of all evils, because it prolongs the torment of man." "Talk" to me about this. Do you agree or disagree with Nietzsche? Explain why? Possibly you see his point of view, but you also view "hope" as a positive entity, as well. Please support your opinion with a personal example.

HOMEWORK:
1. Work on your THRONE! You will receive your first "official" writing assignment on Wednesday, so take advantage of the extra time.
