We made it through the first week of school — congratulations!

Today in class, we continued to talk about Book 1 of the Odyssey. Then students answered some questions about Books 2, 3, and 4 from the graphic novel (if you didn’t finish, you will have some time on Tuesday to work on that). I checked in with everyone about their progress on their summer reading assignments — please remember that your Hero’s Journey diagram is due on Tuesday, September 3, and the essay will be due on Monday, September 9.

Again, I’m so sorry that the Smartboard wasn’t working and that we couldn’t see our after school movie! I have already ordered a cord that I think will fix things for next week. I gave everyone a copy of the questions for the movie Troy (along with the parts to skip to keep it at a PG-13 level) which you can do for extra credit, but that’s totally optional.

Finally, picture day is next Thursday (September 5)!
