As a demigod, Percy Jackson has a unique perspective of the Greek gods and goddesses. Each week students will read and learn about his dysfunctional family and their lying, stealing, backstabbing and cannibalism. We will shake Percy's family tree and discover their misdeeds in new myths each class. This book and class are a twist on classic mythology loaded with Percy's sarcasm and a 21st century perspective. Students will read the myth(s) in advance of class, participate in a teaching...
This class is taught in English.
Students will: Engage effectively in a range of collaborative discussions (one-on-one, in groups, and teacher-led) with diverse partners on grade 7 topics, texts, and issues, building on others' ideas and expressing their own clearly. Come to discussions prepared, having read or researched material under study; explicitly draw on that preparation by referring to evidence on the topic, text, or issue to probe and reflect on ideas under discussion. Follow rules for collegial discussions, track progress toward specific goals and deadlines, and define individual roles as needed. Pose questions that elicit elaboration and respond to others' questions and comments with relevant observations and ideas that bring the discussion back on topic as needed. Analyze the main ideas and supporting details presented in diverse media and formats (e.g., visually, quantitatively, orally) and explain how the ideas clarify a topic, text, or issue under study. Include multimedia components and visual displays in presentations to clarify claims and findings and emphasize salient points. Cite specific textual evidence to support analysis or primary and secondary sources. Determine a theme or central idea of a text and analyze in detail its development over the course of the text, including how it emerges and is shaped and refined by specific details; provide an objective summary of the text Analyze how particular lines of dialogue or incidents in a story or drama propel the action, reveal aspects of a character, or provoke a decision. Analyze how differences in the points of view of the characters and the audience or reader (e.g., created through the use of dramatic irony) create such effects as suspense or humor. Analyze how complex characters (e.g., those with multiple or conflicting motivations) develop over the course of a text, interact with other characters, and advance the plot or develop the theme Determine the meaning of words and phrases as they are used in the text, including figurative and connotative meanings; analyze the cumulative impact of specific word choices on meaning and tone (e.g., how the language evokes a sense of time and place; how it sets a formal or informal tone)
I have been an English teacher for nearly 20 years and have previously taught Greek Mythology in an in person class.
Read the myth or myths prior to class. Approximately 25 to 50 pages per class. Keep a reading response journal.
