Dear Mythology Kids,

THE TERM ENDS on WEDNESDAY, OCT. 26th! Please let me know how I can assist you. I an not available to help after Tuesday, Oct. 18th. 

If you  miss class, then focus on always being pro-active...check the blog, communicate with a friend, and/or communicate with me You need to be prepared when you return to class, my young friends!


If you missed class, we completed the following.....

1. Students were introduced to the following concepts:


  Students reviewed the literary tool of IRONY! WHY? Well, from this point until the end of the year, the myths all have elements of irony within them; consequently reviewing this literary device is essential.

IRONY is  a literary tool that causes the audience to question possible attended outcomes.
  • Verbal Irony:  when a speaker speaks something contradictory to what he intends to. It is an intentional product of the speaker and is contradictory to his/her emotions and actions. 
  • Dramatic Irony:  when the audience has information that characters within the literary text do not. THIS IS THE MOST COMMON FORM OF IRONY!
  • Situational Irony: when the audience's expectation is completely different than the outcome.
3. Students were introduced to DIONYSUS/BACCHUS! Please communicate with a friend in order to obtain the information regarding Dionysus.Dionysus is the Greek god of performance(theater), wine, and merriment. He is also referred to as the "TWICE BORN!" We had a brief introduction regarding Greek drama, as the next myth we read, Oedipus, was performed on stage.


PLEASE OBTAIN THE INFORMATION THAT YOU  MISSED FROM A FRIEND IN CLASS!
