Welcome Back! I hope you had a wonderful holiday!
If you missed class today, we completed the following:
1. Journal #6 "The Right and Wrong to Disney's Hercules"
Students were asked to identify errors in the Disney film. Student divided their paper in half vertically. On the left they wrote "Mythology in general" and on the right they wrote "Hercules." Students were then asked to identify errors in the myth, and the mythology within the film. We watched the first 15 minutes in order to review our discussion from Monday's class period. You will need to do this on your own if you missed class today. I won't have time to show you the film during Flex.
2. While working in the groups,we then completed "Labors 11, 12 and Hercules's death."
3. We then discussed Heracles as paradoxical character. This was useful, as one of the quiz questions you will answer for Wednesday relates to this idea.
4. We then reviewed the irony associated with the Heracles myth.
1. Please read "Heracles" in your book pgs. 166-180 (I think...if I am wrong look up "Heracles" in your table of contents).
2. Review the questions for your quiz on Wednesday. I have included them for you below. Remember that you will randomly pull two of the questions from the following list.
"How do I prepare for the quiz, Crampton?"
"Make sure you have read the myth of Heracles found on page 166 in your textbook. In addition, review the storyboard that we worked on in class on today!
"Will there be extra credit for this quiz?"
"Absolutely! I have listed the questions below. Respond to each one as if you were taking the actual quiz. Originally, I was going to have you complete one of the six questions, but I have changed my mind. You will answer two of the six listed. If you review this way, you will clearly be successful, as you will have two of the six included below, you just don't know which two. You are to discuss the irony found in each excerpt from the myth of “Heracles,” and how the irony adds to the pathos experienced by Heracles. Please be thorough in your response; assume that your audience has no schema on the character of Heracles. Cut and paste the questions into a Word document, and then respond to them on your computer.
