as we read
As we read:
  • Choose any image in the text that strikes you and draw a picture of that text on the ¼ sheets of paper
  • Include a quote from the book that is related to your drawing
  • Does it connect to the hero’s journey?

You must complete 2 of these as we read all of the books

Chapter 9 – Lotus Eaters and Cyclops
  • As we read, take note of the following themes:
    • Use of guile and trickery as opposed to force
    • Rules of civilized behavior? What does it mean, to the Greeks, to be civilized?
    • Importance of hospitality
    • Value of home
what is our monster
What is our monster?

  • With a group of 3 or fewer, design a monster to be our equivalent of a Cyclops. Consider the following:
    • What should the monster look like?
    • What does this monster do to make a living?
    • What types of behavior does this monster exhibit?

One poster per group, but you each need your own 1-2 paragraph reflection on the following prompt:

How does this monster reflect a lack of civility?
