Friday, November 8th and Tuesday, November 11th, 2013

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.
