Dear Mythology Kids,
I hope you had a great weekend. Please make sure you are in class on Thursday! If you missed class, we completed the following:

If you missed class, we completed the following.....
1. Students were introduced to a unique ANNOTATING/NOTATING METHOD using COLORS. Please see my notes below, and then I suggest communicating with a friend that was in class on FRIDAY! Ask them to explain the NOTATION portion of your assignment. Each student was give an article called "WHY CLASSICAL MYTHS ARE STILL RELEVANT TODAY?"
  • If you  find a section of text confusing then you would underline it using BROWN.
  • If you are able to make a connection to your own life then you would underline that section of text using your PURPLE.
  • Another way to annotate is by asking QUESTIONS about the text. RED is the color you will use for this annotation.
  • If text gives you a different perspective then GREEN is your annotation color.
  • ORANGE is the color you will use if you come across text that you find interesting
  • YELLOW (i'm using black here, so you can SEE IT).....if you come across a vocab word that you do not know, then underline it using YELLOW! 
 PLEASE READ for HOMEWORK (due Thursday, January 19th, 2017) and ANNOTATE/NOTATE using the above COLOR CODING system the BLUE handout in your notebook entitled "Why Classical Myths are still relevant Today?" Please include 10-15/ annotations and notations/page. 
 
We also had a brief "history lesson" regarding ancient Greece.  If you missed class, please communicate with a friend regarding the information that was offered in class.
 
I look forward to seeing you on Thursday. 
Cheers,
Crampton
