Greek Mythology
  • We talked about how the Facebook project is going.  :-)
  • We discussed the definition of "myth", using page 2 and our wikiposts as guides.
  • We all shared a connection we had made between a myth and our own lives.
  • Quick Write #5--we took the prompts from page 11 and wrote about chores/tasks.
  • I presented information on Hercules.  I gave a little background, and I talked about the first two labors, the lion and the hyrdra.
