This packet includes one article about Jesus, a link to an article about Achilles, and a link to an article about King Arthur; 4 activities with each article; 1 argumentative essay that would require all three articles. Answer keys are included for quizzes. However, for some activities, I have not provided an answer key because various answers for open-ended questions are expected.

My goal for this unit is to build background knowledge. I noticed early in the year that my students did not know stories from myth, legend, or even the religion they claim to be a part of. Therefore, they could never be able to master RL 8.9. I spent one week with each article, and each activity got its own day. I gave the quiz/study guide on Monday, and they took the quiz on Friday. The quiz questions are all basic recall, but this is exactly what my students needed - time with the text and practice learning the stories.
