World Lit/comp update - week 18

Today we finished watching "O Brother Where Art Thou" and then began our unit on the Aeneid. We discussed the details behind Virgil's Aeneid - that it was modeled after Homer's Iliad and Odyssey - and that there was a clear political agenda to the story.  We also fully fleshed out the details of the entire story.  Then we watched a fabulous stick figure movie about the events in the Aeneid.


Homework:
1. Read the next play about Aeneas and Dido and be ready to answer questions about it at the beginning of class next week.
2. Keep working on your study guide - the unit test will be on February 27th
3. The OMG project is due on March 6 - and on that day we will move on to Norse mythology.
