Reminder that we will have homeroom this week, Monday through Wednesday as part of the 10-day state attendance requirement.
- Review characteristics of The Epic Hero (see last week’s In-class PPT and Guided Notes for Students; Epic Hero Characteristics Chart)
- Discuss steps of The Hero’s Journey
- Brief documentary on Ancient Mesopotamia The Sumerians (remember that this is the area where Gilgamesh was king) — 30 notes from the video
- Start reading “The Epic of Gilgamesh” (adapted version handed out last week) — we will read the italicized introduction at the bottom of p. 23 (on the handout) and “The Death of Enkidu” — and answering guided reading questions
