Welcome to September....Tuesday, September 5th/7th, 2017

Dear Mythology Kids,

1. We completed the Creation myth associated with the Greeks. It is the most significant story, as it explains how the gods came into existence. Please make sure you communicate with someone, as the myth is BIZARRE. Have your "choice," explain the information to you. DO NOT TAKE THE HANDOUT and simply COPY IT!.

2. Even if you missed class, I still expect you to be prepared for class on Thursday Please communicate with someone else in class! Go to the Internet and look up "Greek Creation Myth," in order to obtain assistance!
PC #4
1. Without looking at your flow chart, please explain the Creation Myth....Begin with, "In the beginning, " and go up to where we finished in class on Thursday.
2. Identify examples of the idea that "Chaos creates order" and that "Order creates Chaos" within the Creation Myth. Offer two examples from the myth. You are welcome to use the flow chart for this section of the PC.

Practice Quiz for Greek Creation Myth
“Let’s review, my young friends.”
1.   1.   “The Greek Creation Myth is intensely masculine and crude.”
Prove the above quote! Offer an example from what you have been introduced to so far for the above text.
2.       2. One needs to give the ancient Greeks credit for their creative approach in explaining what they could not understand. Identify at least FOUR explanatory elements which you found CLEVER!
3.      3.  Symbolism is used as a continuous literary tool in strong writing. The Greeks LOVED using symbolism to make their audience THINK HARDER! We have only just begun! There are symbolic elements throughout the Creation myth. Please identify and explain two.
