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

1. Students were given Journal #5 entitled "Greek Theater" review Parts 1 and 2. The students were shown the following images, and asked to do their best concerning recall. If you missed class on Monday, then please complete the entry prior to returning to class on Wednesday.

Journal "Greek Theater Review" Parts 1 and 2
Let’s see what you can recall from our last class period…..
Please explain this image to me. In your explanation, I don’t expect you to remember the woman’s name, (it’s Semele by the way), but you should indicate the male on the left,
and a female not pictured.  

2. These images are depicting the same event. One is from ancient Greece, and the other is a modern interpretation of the myth. Give me some schema on the depicted event.

3.  The character depicted here has three names… a Greek, a Roman, and a name that is highly symbolic of his birth and domain. Explain the symbolism of the third name in relationship to the character’s domain.

3. Students then reviewed the dramatic element of irony by viewing the a short film called "The Last Farm." It is easily accessible on Youtube. It is a foreign film, but there are sub-titles. This is "part 2" of the journal entry. Please identify all the elements of dramatic and situation irony within the film. We then review as a class.

4. We continued by obtaining some background information on the play "Oedipus." 

Please obtain this information from someone in class.

1. Remember that your personal narrative is due on Wednesday. Please let me know if you need help!
2. Please read "Dionysus" in your text....pgs. 55-64 for Wednesday.
3. Your homework coupons are due on Wednesday.

Your FINAL exam!

Dear Mythology Kids, It's nice to "see" you again. Let me offer some "study guidance" for your final exam. Please ...
