Dear Mythology Kids,

STOP MISSING CLASS, guys especially on the days when you have SIGNIFICANT ASSIGNMENTS DUE! Those of you that missed class will need to submit your HOMEWORK COUPON with your NATURE MYTH in order to receive credit for it.

"A SIGNIFICANT AMOUNT, cute kids! Please visit with a friend  prior to checking with me!"

1. You missed two new vocabulary words:
  • GORGONIZE and SISYPHEAN (look the definitions up on your own)
2. You missed submitting your nature myth revision (accompanied with your edited copy) and your mosaic.

3. You missed the definition of ALLUSION and REFERENCE

4. You missed the discussion regarding TWO PIECES of poetry pertaining to ICARUS!

I used Icarus as my focus for emphasizing how frequently references and allusions to mythology arise in literary work. This, of course, is due to the fact that universal themes are always prevalent within the myths; therefore, audiences of all types can connect with the themes that are used.
5. You missed the explanation for a new assignment entitled "Personal Mythology." I will post a copy of the assignment below. I am writing from home, and do not have the assignment here. In the mean time, please visit with a friend from class.

1. Read the student example regarding the "Personal Mythology" assignment.
2. START working on your "Personal Mythology." DUE DATE is THURSDAY, DECEMBER 13th
3. STOP MISSING CLASS, unless you have recently had BACK SURGERY!

Your FINAL exam!

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