5 HEROES PERSEUS Fearless mortal warrior, who takes on an impossible challenge: slaying the monstrous Medusa, whose glance turns men to stone. GODS ZEUS The almighty king of the Gods, who cannot resist feminine beauty mortal or divine and his jealous and vengeful wife, Hera. MONSTERS THE MINOTAUR Half-man and half-bull, the horrible fruit of a queen s unspeakable desire, who destroys the young victims sacrificed to his terrifying power. A fantastic realm of spells and curses, magic and mystery, and forces that create and destroy at will enter the world of the heroes, Gods, and monsters of the Greek myths.

6 Where have you seen Greek mythology?

7 The Gods Zeus Hera Athene Poseidon Hades Demeter The Birth of the Twins Artemis Apollo Sons of Apollo Hermes Hephaestus Aphrodite Contents Nature Myths Prometheus Pandora Phaethon Orpheus Narcissus and Echo Eros and Psyche Arion Demigods Perseus Daedalus Theseus Atalanta Fables Midas Pygmalion

8 Evidence = quotes Do not reuse myths for multiple sections!

9 Theme: the central message or moral of a story. It must be general, not specific. Wrong: The wolf attacked Red Riding Hood. Right: Don t trust strangers. It must be a complete sentence. Wrong: Courage Right: You can find courage within yourself.

10 Characterization Description of character Direct characterization: the author directly describes the character Indirect characterization: the character s personality is revealed through his/her own actions, or by the responses of other characters Character Development The ways in which a character changes (develops) throughout the story It requires a Before/After view Before the ways in which the character behaves at the start of the story. After the ways in which the character behaves after he/she has learned the required lesson.

11 Characterization Direct Characterization Harry Potter was a highly unusual boy in many ways. For one thing, he hated the summer holidays more than any other time of year. For another, he really wanted to do his homework but was forced to do it in secret, in the dead of night. And he also happened to be a wizard. Harry Potter and the Prisoner of Azkaban by J.K. Rowling (page 1) Indirect Characterization While Uncle Vernon, Aunt Petunia, and Dudley had gone out into the front garden to admire Uncle Vernon's new company car (in very loud voices, so that the rest of the street would notice it too), Harry had crept downstairs, picked the lock on the cupboard under the stairs, grabbed some of his books, and hidden them in his bedroom. As long as he didn't leave spots of ink on the sheets, the Dursleys need never know that he was studying magic by night. Harry Potter and the Prisoner of Azkaban by J.K. Rowling (page 2)
