Greek Mythology

The Ancient Greek Myths

Taking Notes - throughout this unit, students will be practicing the art of taking good notes. Students will be using their spiral notebooks to keep notes in an organized fashion. Periodically student notebooks will checked and graded. (See the webpage for taking good notes for more information).

Greek Creation Myth

There are many versions of creation as told by the ancient Greeks; however, we will focus on those tales based on Hesiod and to some degree, Homer. Students will have a skeleton outline to follow in class as they complete the notes for each section (see above). I will orally provide the rest of the outline’s content. If a student is absent, they will need to copy the notes from the classroom notebook or copy from a friend. *Greek mythology is nonfiction; it is describing a culture which once existed. Greek tales themselves are fictional; the characters are not real.

Independent Projects - Due by October 5th

Students will be expected to choose a topic to complete as an independent project grade. A few of the topics do allow for students to work in pairs or a small group of four or fewer.  Projects must be submitted to Mrs. Johnson by October 5th.  Students will want to follow the specific rubric that corresponds with their project. Use the Google Classroom website with your Google account if you wish to upload your project for me to view. These same projects will then be presented in the social studies class with Mrs. Davis for an oral presentation grade for her class as well.
