PRODUCT DESCRIPTION

I love teaching this unit with my classes. It is a real favorite.

Here are 6 resources in a zip file which include:

1. King Polydectes Must Die
Examine the moral debate between Phoenix and Laura over whether or not to kill King Polydectes. Students also compare this story with the original myth (copies of the myth supplied).

2. Medea
What do we explicitly know about Medea and what do we implicitly know? Students spend a little more time examining this meddling character.

3. Pan
Three tasks which examines Pan's role in the story, culminating in a synthesis series of true or false statements.

4. Phoenix and Andreas
What is the connection between Phoenix and his uncle? Two tasks, including examining the picture Phoenix uncovers of his uncle when he was younger. What significance can we draw from looking at the past?

5. Phoenix's Mythology
A part research/ part connections worksheet. Explore each of the mythological characters mentioned in the novel and then chart them on a sociogram to see how Phoenix's mythological world is connected.

6. Steve Adams - How Nasty is Nasty?
Use the personality monster to decipher Steve Adam's transformation from school yard bully to complete mythological villain.
