Dear Mythology Kids,
YOUR MOSAICS ARE PHENOMENAL! I am so proud of you!
If you missed class, we completed the following:
1. We reviewed the first half of the "Heracles" myth, and then returned to the irony found within the myth. Each student recorded a list of the aspects on the reverse side of the storyboard.
2. We then continued with the storyboard, focusing specifically on the 12 labors of Heracles. Please obtain this information from a peer.
1. Please read "Heracles" in your book pgs. 166-180 (I think...if I am wrong look up "Heracles" in your table of contents). If you have your own copy of the book, then refer to pages 222-244.
2. Review the questions for your quiz on Friday. 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.
