Due November 15: The Odyssey

After we wrap up Edith Hamilton's Mythology, we'll be diving straight into The Odyssey, so be sure to buy, check out, or borrow a copy of The Odyssey translated by Robert Fagles by Friday, November 15. I have copies to check out to students, so let me know soon if you need to borrow one. If you are feeling especially generous, please buy one and, when we are finished with it, donate it to the school for future classes to use! You can find some great deals on used copies at Amazon, but you need to order soon.

 

Studying for the Mythology Unit Test . . .

Next week is our unit test over the entire Mythololgy unit, so here are a few tips to help you prepare. To study for the mythology unit test, you need to concentrate on two lists that I gave you: (1) the mythology terms list you received back before Fall Break, and (2) the list of recurring topics that we've been discussing in all of the mythology presentations.
 

75 questions on the test will be fill-in-the-blank, multiple choice, and matching. Most of these will deal with identification of the terms on the mythology terms sheet that I gave you. Remember, this is the sheet that I said to study for your quizzes and to review as you read through the book. Some of you have set up flash cards to help you study these, and that kind of strategy should be helpful for this portion of the test.
 

There will also be three discussion questions in which you will not only have to display your knowledge of the myths but also discuss the myths in the context of the recurring topics I gave you in your notes. Study the notes you've been taking in class during the presentations. You should be able to identify recurring topics that each of the myths involve. Also, if I ask you about a specific topic, you should be able to think of one or two myths that apply to that topic. Consult the list of recurring topics so you can make sure you have them all.
 

Finally, I've also uploaded a review crossword puzzle that reviews the terms from the first 12 chapters of the book. Keep in mind, this is not a comprehensive review exercise; it only reviews the first 12 chapters. Also, it is not a required assignment. It is only here as a study aid.
 

The test next week is a large grade for the quarter, so be sure to study well!
