Thursday, September 24, 2015 Dear Mythology Kids,

MID-TERM is UPON US, and some of you are struggling! PLEASE let me know how I can assist you. I recommend that you take advantage of "consultation time" held each Monday.  Remember that you need to be PRO-ACTIVE in relationship to your education! I AM HERE TO HELP!

1. We started class by reviewing  "Prometheus" and "Pandora" in relationship to "moral truths" found within both myths. Students worked in groups, and then we discussed ideas as a class.



2.  We continued our discussion regarding "Pandora," by responding to the following:
Journal #3 entitled   "Hope"
1.Please consider the following quote by Friedrich Nietzsche. "Hope is the worst of all evils, because it prolongs the torment of man." "Talk" to me about this. Do you agree or disagree with Nietzsche? Explain why? Possibly you see his point of view, but you …

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.

Dear Mythology Kids,

If you missed class, we completed the following:
1. Your "Handout" assignment was returned to you. We discussed some problems in relationship to MLA format and citation methods.
2. Students then shared information regarding the following gods. If you missed class, please take the information located below and transfer to the handout in your notebook.


AthenaZeus swallowed Athena's mother, Metis, because an oracle had informed Zeus that if Metis birthed a son that child would overthrow his father. Zeus felt that he could not risk this, so he swallowed Metis. Athena grew within her father, until one day he experience a terrible headache. Hephaestus, the God of Inventions, sliced open Zeus' head and Athena was born wearing full battle armour and holding a shield and spear. Athena values mankind. She taught them how to create tools, use numbers, create nets, weaving and ships.Athena expected mankind to give gratitude to the gods of Olymp…

3. You will have a TEST covering the GREEK PANTHEON on WEDNESDAY! I have included the practice test for you below. I would use a seperate sheet of paper.

PRACTICE TEST for "The Olympians" NOTE: I did not find an image of Hades that I felt was "accurate." Please be aware of this when taking your quiz. Good Luck..... REMEMBER THAT YOU SHOULD NOT USE YOUR NOTES for this assessment! USE THIS AS A PRE-TEST!



For each image, please identify the Greek and Roman names, the other symbols not present in the image, and all of the god's domains. Please follow this structure for each response.

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

1. We reviewed with a partner concerning the "Creation Myth." The best to prep is to make sure you feel good about the practice quiz on the previous post.

2. Students took the quiz.

3. We then started with the Greek Pantheon by identifying the gods by GREEK, ROMAN, SYMBOLS, and DOMAINS. If you missed class, please obtain this information from one of your friends. We stopped at Demeter!

HOMEWORK:
1. Please read pages 24---- to the first 1/2 of 36. This section pertains to each of the 13 Olympians. Your assignment is to identify THREE POINTS of INTEREST for each god, and then record that as your homework. For example:

ZEUS:
1. I find it interesting that he is the king of the gods; yet, he lacks leadership skills; he is so indecisive.
2. He is recognized as not making difficult decisions too often, but I think it is interesting that when he does, he is fair.
3. The fact that he thought the SKY was better t…

Friday, September 2nd! Welcome to September!
