Wednesday, September 25th, 2014 and Friday, September 26th, 2014

Dear Mythology Kids,
If you missed class, we completed the following:

1.WHAT DO ANNOTATE and NOTATE MEAN, Crampton?
 "ANNOTATE" means to underline text in order to strengthen understanding. "NOTATE" means to record information next to text in order to strengthen understanding."

  • If you  find a section of text confusing then you would underline it using BROWN.
  • Another way to annotate is by asking QUESTIONS about the text. RED is the color you will use for this annotation.
  • If you come across a VOCABULARY word that you don't know use PURPLE!
  • If a piece of text touches you emotionally, then BLUE is the color for that annotation.
  • If a piece of writing is poetic to you, then use BLACK!
  • If text gives you insight into THEME or MOTIFS then GREEN is your annotation color.
  • ORANGE is the color you will use if you come across text that you find interesting. 

We continued discussing the gods! The remaining information regarding HERMES, ARES, and APHRODITE is located below. REMEMBER THAT YOU WILL HAVE A QUIZ COVERING THE GODS ON TUESDAY!
