Friday Paragraph #18 (due 13 Feb)- Use the following words in a 20 line poem or a 1 page short story: burglar, desk lamp, envelope, forest, red velvet cake. Extra awesomeness if you include Valentine’s Day in the story! Turn in on Classroom by midnight on Friday.

Discuss the Quarter 3 plan and project. Read this document start to finish. Presentations will be about 20 minutes each. We will begin presentations on 9 March and finish on 11 March. This project/presentation includes 5 major skills and will be the majority of the quarter grade.

Today you will be searching out information for your presentation. First, check out Shmoop for information about The Odyssey. This site can help you with themes, symbols and details you may have forgotten. In particular, look at the sections on themes and analysis. Here’s another video of the story; it has 3 parts, so search around for the other 2 if you want to use it.

Then, search the Internet for artwork, songs, poems, stories and/or video that is related to themes, symbols and ideas found in The Odyssey. Keep these links on a Googledoc for future reference. Share the document among your group members.

I have started a sample Google Presentation to give you a rough idea what you will be creating. This is just a small start. I expect more from your work.
