Drawing is a great time to ruminate on the deeper ideas students are studying. Personally, I created these because my wife's just endlessly coloring when she comes home from work.

I have a COMPLETE UNIT of Greek Mythology Stewing and this will be part of it. The whole unit will include 20 myths of about 9th grade reading level, at about 1500 to 6000 words each. It will include pre and post tests with freewriting topics, discussion topics, activities, and contextual content. It will focus on virtues, vices and heroes.
