5 Greek Mythology and Greek Life "Myth has two main functions," the poet and scholar Robert Graves wrote in “The first is to answer the sort of awkward questions that children ask, such as ‘Who made the world? How will it end? Who was the first man? Where do souls go after death?’…The second function of myth is to justify an existing social system and account for traditional rites and customs In ancient Greece, stories about gods and goddesses and heroes and monsters were an important part of everyday life. They explained everything from religious rituals to the weather, and they gave meaning to the world people saw around them.

6 Your Greek Mythology Project You will write a 1-2 page Greek Myth inspired story. HOWEVER, it is set in 2013! You are going to apply the themes of a myth (that you learned in Language Arts) and write a myth that would explain a cultural experience that we have today. You will choose to focus on: *explaining a natural phenomenon * Teaching a moral (lesson) *Writing an adventure using an extreme display of emotion (love, envy, fear, jealousy) Follow rubric and components discussed in Language Arts for expectations DUE: FEB. 14/15 th (NEXT THURSDAY /FRIDAY!!)

7 Brainstorm Sheet Explanation This is your opportunity to use what you wrote and we discussed about in the beginning of class in relation to YOUR CULTURE to figure out what you will write about in your Greek Myth Fill in the shapes with your ideas (can be bulleted). This is for you but will be checked for HW. On the right hand side, you only have to pick ONE shape to fill in. Your story only NEEDS to focus on ONE of these experiences. If you want to do more to challenge yourself, then AWESOME. YOU WILL GET MORE POINTS ON RUBRIC FOR INCLUDING MORE THAN ONE. If you want to do more to challenge yourself, then AWESOME.
