Mythology class update - October 17

Today we began by talking about the Hero's journey chart that the students completed.  This is one of my favorite assignments - it's really enlightening to see how similar all stories are!  I am looking forward to seeing how the students analyzed some of their favorites.

We moved on with our discussion of heroes by reading "Theseus and the Minotaur" and "Perseus."  We have three more heroes to learn about.

Homework:
1.  Begin working on an essay to compare and contrast our cultural idea of a hero vs the Greek ideal. Email (katrinaharrisclasses@gmail.com) the outline for your essay to me by noon on October 23rd.  This way I will have time to go over them and return them on Thursday with notes.
2.  Continue working on your OMG project (feel free to bring in examples to make sure you are on the right tract).
3.  Quiz on the 12 labors and heroes on October 24
4.  Next week is the deadline to register for the Roman banquet field trip.  Please be sure to bring your check next week to reserve your spot!
