Middle School students preparing archetype essays

Middle school students are working hard tonight to finish the first draft of their archetype essays, 500-750 words tracing an archetype through a single work of literature or popular culture. They will also be performing a children's version of The Odyssey for the elementary school on Friday, and learning about types of metrical feet so that they understand what dactylic hexameter meant for Homer! If you have an old chiton lying around (a Greek tunic or robe) or leather sandals that you don't mind loaning out this week, please send them to school by Wednesday.
