The task is to read and understand four Greek myth stories before exam time (we will read more after that).
These are the tales;
In the Beginning/Pandora’s box
Arachne the Spinner
Apollo and Daphne
Make a heading in your journal for each story you read. For each story you need to include the following things:
- A summary of the story. Pretend you have to describe the tale to somebody who knows nothing about it. this is a paragraph, at least three sentences long.
- In sentences, describe at least two of the characters (gods, demigods, mortals) that appear in the story. Tell who they are and what they do. Use at least two adjectives in your description of each character.
- For each character description, find a direct quote from the story that supports your description.
- If there are gods in the stories, Decide if they are more cruel or kind in the way they treat people and other gods? Provide an example from the story to support your answer.
We will work on this through next Monday the 28th. Knowledge of these stories will help you greatly on the semester exam.
