Homework
Frequency: available upon request
Feedback: available upon request
Details: Homework is optional. I will add some fun personal and comprehension questions to the classroom page on each Monday so you can test yourself on what you remember from the story and build relationships with the other students in class! If you prefer, the questions can simply be talked over with a loved one. If you would like to share your answers, I will respond to each student’s comments and/or answers in the Outschool classroom throughout the week. I will correct any wrong answers (to the comprehension questions only), and supply any answers that the students could not remember.
Assessment
Frequency: available upon request
Details: Please see answer to the "homework" section above. The questions I will post in the classroom page are a way to informally assess how your student is doing!
I will be drawing mostly from "D'Aulaires' Book of Greek Myths" and occasionally from: "Bulfinch's Greek and Roman Mythology: The Age of Fable" and Edith Hamilton's "Mythology: Timeless Tales of Gods and Heroes" to tell each myth in a full and clear way accessible to young learners!
