Dear Mythology Kids,
TODAY we focused on ANALYSIS! You have a strong understand of the pantheon, Hades, and the myths associated with the gods. At this point, my young friends, you can explain to an audience how the use of mythology assists a reader in understanding meaning!  

For those of you on tour, THIS IS DUE UPON YOUR RETURN. The majority of you communicated with me prior to your departure, so you have schema on what we did in class. For those of you that did not, PLEASE START ADVOCATING FOR YOURSELVES! The analysis that you wrote did in class is due on Wednesday!
