Dear Mythology Students,

I hope you had an enjoyable weekend. If you missed class on the 26th , we completed the following:


1. Each student submitted their "What is a Classic?" assignment. It was interesting to hear students' ideas and interpretations regarding their choices.





2. Each student received a textbook. If you missed class, please stop by so that I can give you a book, and you can then proceed to the library where you can check one out!

3. We then continued with our "history" lesson regarding Athens and Sparta.  Students watched a brief clip regarding the Spartan way of life from the movie 300.  You will need to obtain this information from a student in class.


HOMEWORK:
Please read the section in your textbook entitled "Introduction to Classical Mythology" located on pages 13-23. As you read, create a list of  25 points that you found interesting. Record the textual line and then indicate why you found that particular section worthwhile…

Wednesday, August 20th! WELCOME BACK, SENIORS!

Welcome to the "Jungle" Dear Mythology Students, I welcome you to the land of gods and goddesses, where logic does not exist, only the idea that some where in the slime of cosmic confusion, order becomes real. Was that poetic? TRANSLATION: Prepare yourself to learn ancient ideas and concepts that are bizarre; yet still relevant and valid in modern times. I welcome you to Mythology.
