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.
"WHAT DID I MISS, CRAMPTON?"
"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)
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.
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!
