The Hero's Journey
Joseph Campbell, an American psychologist and mythological researcher, wrote a famous book tittle The Hero with a Thousand Faces. Campbell discovered many common patterns that are in many hero myths and stories from around the world. He described several basic stages that almost every hero goes through.
Based on our reading of The Lightning Thief, we will cite evidence of how Percy fits this mold of hero. We also identify these hero traits in other stories, myths, movies, and fables.
Today's text is Making Music History. Students should bring scored work home each week.
Responses are turned in through Edmodo. Students received a new sheet with four types of response prompts (# 5-8) that are aligned to 6th grade Common Core English Language Arts. The last two weeks were #1-4. They are to select one prompt each day. We have reviewed the requirements in class. Daily home reading with a typed response should take 20-25 minutes. Each response is worth 5 points for a total of 20 each week.
Two more things....
Also, cold season is here and we are going through boxes of tissues rather quickly.
Thank you in advance for any donations.
