English 9 — Tuesday, Feb. 20

cuneiform

Today: We listened to an audio adaptation of The Epic of Gilgamesh, taking notes as we listened, and discussing.

  • How is Gilgamesh similar to and different from Odysseus?
  • What real-life human concerns is this epic about? Which ones were specific to that time and place? Which ones still apply today?

Tomorrow: We will continue to listen to and discuss The Epic of Gilgamesh.

Homework: Finish your response to “Odysseus and the Cylcops” if you have not already done so. Also, reading! 🙂
