This week, the grade 9 students started their study of Greek mythology by reading Homer’s The Odyssey. To gain a better understanding of the text, they participated in related activities such as putting themselves in a character’s dilemma, debating choices made by the characters, and rewriting scenes from the characters’ perspective.
This week, the grade 9 English class presented their story timelines to get to know each other better. Students made visual chronological representations of stories that were most important to them and created oral presentations explaining their significance. Students will go on to learn about the hero’s role in stories later this week.
