Dear HA Kids,

I am doing my best to imbed a slide review and the power point used in class into the blog post; however, at this point I am uncertain how to fix the problem. So, I need you to be patient with me. 
  • "Well, the best way to prepare would be to make flashcards for each of the points indicated on your graphic organizer!"
  • Questions #1- 15 involve you responding without any slide identification aspects.
  • Questions #16- 40 involve slide identification
MAKE SURE YOU READ "PYGMALION" and "CUPID AND PSYCHE," as questions will appear on your quest relating to the myths.

If you missed class on Tuesday, then please visit with another student.  I have given you some information below. 

Crampton and Davis

Dear HA Kids,

If you missed class today, we completed the following:

1. We continued playing the ROME GAME! Ms. Davis and I hoped you enjoyed learning the aspects associated with building a Roman city.

2. We then continued discussing POMPEII! This Roman city is so significant, simply because it acted as a TIME CAPSULE. When Mt. Vesuvius erupted in 79 A.D., the city was literally encased in a wall of ash 25 feet deep. The people, art, architecture, and every day aspects associated with life were lost in time, but also preserved.  Please obtain the information discussed in class, with some one that was actually there.

1. Please begin to review for Quest covering Rome on Thursday!
2. Please read "Pygmalian and Gatlatea" pgs.  145-149 for your Quest!
3. Please read "Cupid and Psyche" pgs. 121-134 for your Quest!

Dear Humanities Kids,

If you missed today, we completed the following:

Plato's words have merit and validity, don't you think? What does he mean? How can a person be friendly to everyone; yet, not actually have any friends? Do you know people like this? Explain?

2. We completed discussing the Hellenistic time period in relationship to Greek sculpture.

3. We also discussed the significance of Alexander, the Great! You can decide if you think he was "great" or not?????

4. We then discussed Sparta and Olympia.
Guys, you SHOULD NOT use your notes for this. Clearly we have an integrity issue here, as I am not sitting next to you at the moment. Use the practice quiz as a pre-test! Cut and paste the following questions into a Word document, and then respond to them from there. Good Luck!

1. What type of artwork is this piece? What do we know about the culture that created it?

2. Identify which of the three time periods this statue represents.
3. This form of art is given what "title" or name?
4. What is the female title for this type of statue?
. Identify the three architectural styles (in any order) indicated in the above image?
5. _______________________ 6.______________________ 7._____________________
8. Who was able to compete in the Olympics?
9. Explain the dichotomy between Athens and Sparta?
10. How did Athens receive its name? (You need to mention two gods for your response.)
11. Explain Alexander the Great's significance to modern culture.
12. Which of the three time period does this statue represent? Explain.

13. Explain in writing the difference between Hellenistic sculpture and the other two types.

Dear Academy Students,
If you missed class we completed the following:

1. Ms. Davis and I discussed the significant advancements regarding the Minoan culture. I recommend communicating with a friend regarding this information.

2. We then divided the class, and 1/2 the students stayed with Davis and the other half came with Crampton. Both groups watched a video regarding the achievements of the Minoan culture and what caused their decline. This is JOURNAL #6, entitled "Minoan Culture: Interesting Points." If you missed class, you are welcome to stop by during a flex session and view the video clip. ALL MYTHOLOGY STUDENTS NEED TO WATCH THE CLIP THAT DAVIS SHOWED IN HER ROOM. OTHER STUDENTS need to check in WITH CRAMPTON.

1. Mythology in Art is due on TUESDAY.
2. "QUEST" covering the Minoans and Myceneans will take place on THURSDAY.
NOTE: Ms. Davis will create a slide identification to assist you with preparing for the quest. We have included some images for you below to help you begin to prepare, while the slide identification is created.

1. What do we know about these two societies. Identify and explain aspects of both.

2. Explain how this event connects to Crete?

3. How does this image relate to myth?

4. Explain the intellect of the Minoans through the use of the following images as catalysts.

5.  These images represent two different societies. Identify them and then discuss their differences.

Thursday, October 31st, 2013....Happy Halloween!

Dear Humanities Academy Kids,

1. Test covering Greek Gods on MONDAY! You will see pictures of the Greek gods, and I will ask that you identify the god via their symbols.  You will need to identify the Greek, Roman, one symbol not shown, and two domains if the god has more than one.

I am aware that we did not discuss all the gods, so create flashcards for the ones that we did review. In addition, all of the gods are indicated on the practice quiz, but we did not discuss #8 or #10, so just skip those. 

2. Create Flashcards for the gods. You can use a 1/4 of the number that you create on the quiz.

 PRACTICE QUIZ for Friday's Quiz

Please identify the god by their Greek and Roman names, symbols not shown and domains (include all of them if they have more than one.) Some of the images depict all the symbols so identify the gods' Greek and Roman names along with their domains. I apologize that some of the images are slightly blurry. No clue????????
