Today we started with an entry in our Writer’s Notebook.

The prompt was: “Mythology begins where science ends.”  Respond to this statement.  Consider what it literally means.  Then consider how this directly applies to your life or the world around you.  You should be very specific in your response.

Then, we reviewed the Prologue in Gilgamesh.

Finally, we explored how the simile in paragraph 2 of the Prologue contributed to the development of Gilgamesh’s character.

HW: Read & annotate chapter 2 (pages 6-13) for tomorrow.
