This week we will continue with the slideshow presentations using Google Slides. Remember to print your copy of the presentation (3-4 slides per page). It’s part of the evaluative criteria.
We’ll also continue with the selection “Prometheus and the First People.” Bring in the copy of the text which I handed out during the last class. Test #1 for this final trimester will be on this selection. I’ve changed the date for this test to April 10th which falls on the Friday we get back from Easter break.
On Thursday, March 26th, I’ll quiz you on the Greek mythology figures. This will be Quiz #2 for the 4th trimester. Besides the 12 Olympian gods (check e-Text page 796 for these), you should be familiar with other Greek gods and figures. See the following list. (Hope you do better on this quiz. The results for Quiz #1 were not the best!)
Hades – god of the underworld
Dionysus – god of wine and revelry
Helios – sun god
Uranus – sky god
Gaea – earth goddess and mother of the Titans and Cyclopes
Cronus – Titan who ruled the universe before his son Zeus dethroned him
Rhea – wife of Cronus and mother of Zeus
Cyclops – any one of the three Titans who forged thunderbolts for Zeus
The Fates – three goddesses who wove threads of each person’s life
The Muses – nine goddesses who presided over the arts and sciences
See you in class! ~~LMM
