Today we did our first Interactive Notebook entry. The vocabulary word was ineffable; the journal prompt was How would you define a hero? What qualities does a hero have? Consider the use of heroes in movies and literature. What are common traits of these heroes? Who is your favorite hero in literature or film? Why? Please check with a classmate to talk about the vocabulary word and to see the expectations for the journal entries.

Following this, we took some notes. You can view the notes here.

As a class, we read pages 1037-1047 of The Odyssey in our textbooks. You can check out a freshman literature textbook from the library, or come into my classroom during lunch or before/after school, to catch up on the reading. As we read, we took note of Odysseus's good or heroic qualities.

Some relevant video clips:
