As the holidays are approaching we are spending our last two weeks working on the The Trojan War. We are hoping to understand the allusions that began in this classic work and to understand the origins of a literary hero. The weeks are complicated by a variety of field trips and events. If we finish the story, there will be  short test prior to break, if we don't there will be a short quiz over what we have covered. The scores for this quiz will be in second semester.

Kids need to turn in any missing or mis-scored work no later than Tuesday morning. Any other questions or disputes with their grades should be brought up by then as well.

Monday - 12/8 - Begin the Trojan War - who are the gods an goddesses
Tuesday - 12/9 - The Golden Apple
Wednesday 12/10 - recruiting Odysseus
Thursday - 12/11 The Greeks launch for Troy
