Mon., Nov. 21

Writing Prompts
Have you submitted writing prompts 4 and 5?  See the separate Canvas entries to do so.
Help Sessions
Regular myth help sessions (study sessions, questions) are scheduled for first block of Ac Lab on Monday, November 28, and Monday, December 5, but see next section.
Make Up/Retesting
Three students had planned some type of testing with me at the end of last week, which obviously did not happen.  To aid in everyone's planning, I should be available every day after school during the week of November 28.  If you wish to test with me during Ac Lab, please choose a session other than the first mod.  In other words, take your test during a Latin or Greek mod.
Jason Testing
We will need to reschedule this test, tentatively for Τhursday, December 1.  Besides chapter 24 of the book itself and your own notes, here are some good resources from the textbook publisher:
Summary of the Story
https://global.oup.com/us/companion.websites/9780199997329/student/materials/chapter24/ (the entry under Myth Summary contains identical information): Add any information unfamiliar to you to your own notes.
Practice Test
https://global.oup.com/us/companion.websites/9780199997329/student/materials/chapter24/quiznew/
Class Activities = Your Notes
We (my computers) experienced technical difficulties last week that changed how you were getting information on Heracles.  We need to continue down this path for the time being.  When we regroup, I will check in with you on the rest of the myths of Heracles, as we had begun to do on Friday through the Second Labor.
Your resource at home, which also serves as the basis for my notes, is the Classical Mythology textbook of Morford and Lenardon, chapter 22.  If you take good notes, you should have everything we could still cover.
Have notes on the following topics (if you attended class last week, you should have some of this material already, most of you through the Twelve Labors):

    • background (ancestry and family history)
    • Amphitryon and Alcmena
    • birth of Heracles and Eileithyia
    • early education
    • Hera and the madness of Heracles
    • Twelve Labors (pp. 567-75)
      • Use this approach throughout:
        • Challenge/s
        • Solution/s
        • NOTE: Theseus is somehow involved or connected to labors seven and nine.
      • Include at least these parerga ("side labors": Did you get these in your note taking?)
        • Pholus (4th Labor)
        • Admetus and Alcestis (8th Labor)
          • We will cover this myth fully as we study Artemis and Apollo.
        • Laomedon and the First Trojan War (9th Labor)
        • many associated with 10th Labor
          • Pillars of Heracles
          • Ligurians
          • Cacus
          • Eryx
          • Alcyoneus
        • two additional adventures within the 11th Labor
          • Prometheus freed (Prometheus had predicted to Io that this would happen)
          • Antaeus
      • Adventures after the Labors (pp. 576-79)
        • Cycnus
        • Syleus
        • Cercopes (or "watch out where you get a sunburn")
      • Here's a summary that will be a test question somewhere:
        • Three Kings Deposed by Heracles

        1. Laomedon, king of Troy, replaced by son Priam (king of Troy during the Trojan War)
        2. Augeas, king of Elis, replaced by son Phyleus
        3. Neleus, king of Pylos, and 11 sons, replaced by son Nestor
          •    Neleus's son Periclymenus, shape changer (gift of Poseidon), took the 
               form of a bee
            • identified by Athena for Heracles
            • shot by Heracles with arrow
      • Death of Heracles (579 ff.)

For most of you, then, you will have about five or so pages for which you will need to take notes.

Down the Road
After the Jason test, we typically have a smaller test over Perseus/Bellerophon and a test over Heracles, normally all multiple choice/multiple response format.

    • Some people needed to complete the chapter 8 translation.  Please do so.  It will help prepare you for the grammar topic on page 54.
    • I had hoped to cover the grammar with you before Thanksgiving break.  You will have to start on your own.  Please add to your notes the three extremely important tables on page 54 and pay attention to what they are telling you.  Verb formation is the most important topic I will teach you all year.
      NOTE: For the first chart, please write the 1st person singular entry not as -ō (the way it appears in the chart), but as -m/-ō (there is a note about this before the third chart at the bottom of the page).
      SUMMARY: We now have the complete set of verb endings that we started all the way back in chapter 1:
          • -m/-ō = I
          • -s = you (singular)
          • -t = s/he, it (but just one of them)
          • -mus = we
          • -tis = you (plural)
          • -nt = they
