ELA due Thursday

Due Friday:

Create 1-2 slides using Google Slide.  Search for a visual representation of the myth "Phaethon" on Google Images.  This image will provide meaning which explains the character Apollo or Phaethon.  Additionally, choose one of the questions of the handout to think about and provide your insights concisely and simply on the slide.

This is an opportunity to demonstrate the standard in reading which asks you to analyze how particular elements of a story interact.

Looking forward to a fabulous whole class slide show on Friday.
