Dear Mythology Kids,

If you missed class, please be aware of the following:

Students were assigned TWO  myths for homework, "Prometheus" and "Pandora."
Both stories are located in your text; however, I gave the students, that were present, two hard copies of the myths. IF YOU MISSED CLASS, PLEASE STOP BY AND SEE ME ON MONDAY, SO I CAN GIVE YOU COPIES OF THE MYTHS. If you don't stop by, then you will need to read the myths; they are located in your book.

AS YOU READ "PROMETHEUS" AND "PANDORA" UNDERLINE TEXT WITHIN THE MYTHS THAT ANSWER THE FOLLOWING QUESTION: 
"WHAT IS THE MYTH ATTEMPTING TO TEACH ME?" OR
"WHAT TRUTHS ARE EVIDENT IN THIS STORY?" OR
"WHAT IS THE MYTH REALLY ABOUT?"  

We took a quiz covering Zeus, Poseidon, Athena, Hades, and Demeter. If you missed class, then please plan to take the quiz during Consultation Time on Monday.

We also obtained information regarding HERA. See the info below.

  Hera

  • Zeus transforms into a cuckoo bird. Hera loves animals, and finds a "cuckoo bird" outside her window trapped in a storm. She brings the bird to her breast and states, "I will love you forever, cuckoo bird, and I swear by the River Styx that I will honor this vow." At this point, Zeus returned to his true form, raped Hera, and told her that she had to honor her vow by marrying him. If you swore by Styx your oath could not be broken.
  • She loves animals.
  • Hephaestus is her son without a father (in some versions) Hera was angry that Zeus had given birth to Athena without the assistance of a mother, so she gave birth to Hephaestus without a father. He was born ugly and unshapen, so she cast him off Mt. Olympus.
  • Due to Zeus' affairs, Hera takes her anger and frustrations out on Zeus' lovers and children
