STOP MISSING CLASS, my young friends! I LOVE YOUR GUTS, but the more you miss class the harder it is for you to grasp the material! IF YOU NEED HELP, then COMMUNICATE, so that I CAN ASSIST YOU!
If you missed class, we completed the following:
1. Each student submitted the revised edition of their "Comparison Analysis."
2. Students then worked in their groups and identified TWO THEMES and/or MOTIFS for "Arachne" and "Narcissus." Communicate with a member from your group if you were absent. I promise that all the discussions we have had about the NATURE MYTHS will come in handy.
3. Students were introduced to a new god...DIONYSUS...the god of WINE, MERRIMENT, and THEATER! His ROMAN name is BACCHUS1 Please obtain the information about DIONYSUS from a peer, as it involves a picture.
4. Students were then introduced to GREEK THEATER and their first aesthetic myth entitled "Oedipus" located on page 268 in your textbook. This is actually one of the most famous pieces of Greek literature that still remains in its entirety. It was first written as a myth, and then converted to a theatrical tragedy by a playwright named Sophocles. Students were given a handout in class covering GREEK THEATER. If you were absent, the handout is available in the "Mythology Make-Up Box."
