If you missed class on Friday, August 24th
Dear Mythology Kids,

Several of you missed class today. 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.)

HOMEWORK for TUESDAY:
1. Your "What is a Classic" assignment is due on Tuesday!

WHAT DID YOU DISCUSS IN CLASS, Crampton?
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)
c. The terms POLYTHEISTIC and HELLENISTIC
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!
