Today (and tomorrow’s block), we’ll read up through page 1017 on The Odyssey and do a worksheet instead of a quiz. Vocab packets are due today. Remember–to get full credit you need to follow all of the directions and make sure those context sentences are strong. If you forget, you’ll need to serve an academic detention in order to turn it in late.
We’ll review vocab today, the quiz will be during the Thursday/Friday block. We’ll also look up epic similes and characteristics today in our reading as well as answer any questions you might have about what’s going on. If time, we’ll read some as a class and get through the story by the end of the week. Right now, I’m aiming for next Monday for our test. Sound good?
Don’t forget that your allusion paragraph is due next time (Th, Friday) as well. It must be named after something in our story, not just any allusion.
