Mythology Class update week 2

The format for our class is to begin with a fix the grammar picture and then do one SAT vocabulary sentence.  This is the grammar photo we corrected today:


With the SAT word, we discuss the type of word that needs to fit the sentence (does it need to be an adjective, noun, or adverb?) and the process of elimination.  Next, we will review what we learned the previous week - students should be reviewing their notes each week as part of their homework.

The students began with their god presentations - and we learned a little more about Zeus, Dionysus, Artemis, Zeus, Poseidon, and Hades.  One student, for the visual portion of her presentation, put a picture of a Greek vase on a pot - what a cool idea!


Today's first focus was on the many monsters of mythology - most of them the spawn of Echidna and Typhon.  Then we discussed the creation of humans, the disobedience of Prometheus, and the punishment of both Prometheus and humans.

Homework:
1.  Be ready for the second god presentation.
2.  Continue to work on the OMG project.
3.  Handout with questions regarding week 2 (you may need to read over your D'Aulaires book to answer some of the questions)
4.  Quiz next week over Greek/Roman gods and their jobs.  The symbols will be extra credit only.
