Happy Friday! We will be wrapping up our reading of The Lightning Thief next week by reading chapter eight. After next week we will be moving on a team, but I will encourage any student who is enjoying the ride to finish it up!
Students will select evidence from “The Hero’s Journey” and explain how it aligns with Percy’s experience in The Lightning Thief. We will use this as an opportunity to teach and experience the writing process, and paragraphs will be due on Friday as a writing assignment. In the midst of writing, we will explore a couple more myths that also align well with the hero’s journey.
I hope everyone has a wonderful weekend!
