We began class by discussing your homework from last night. Here is a link to a video of the African tribe (the Himba of Namibia) that we discussed:


(This is so, so cool – please check it out! The section on the Himba starts about halfway through.)

Today we finished up our discussion of Book 1 (the introduction) to the Odyssey. We read Book 5 (about Calypso), and discussed it using this PowerPoint: The Odyssey Book 5

We also talked about a couple of upcoming assignments.

Your Ella Minnow Pea Reading Guide #4 is due on Tuesday. EMP Reading Guide 4

And your hero’s journey story is due on Wednesday. Hero’s Journey Writing Assignment

There was no homework tonight so that you can start working on your story (worth a double daily grade).
