Dear Humanities Kids,

STOP MISSING CLASS! What do you want me to do, cute kids? I can't repeat an entire 80 minutes class session. How sick are you? Really? Stop finding, making, and using excuses. The most effective way to be successful is to attend class, and if you are struggling here, then "real life" is going to SUCK FOR YOU!

"Did I miss anything?"
"No. You didn't miss anything, because we NEVER do anything in class...EVER!"
"Find out what you missed on your own, because I am not going to indicate it here...ACT AS AN ADVOCATE FOR YOURSELF!"

1. "Mythology in Art" is due on TUESDAY! Let me know if you have any questions.
2."Quest" covering Minoan and Mycenean cultures will take place on THURSDAY!

SLIDE IDENTIFICATION for XC for "Quest." You are welcome to answer the following questions in preparation for your quest. Each question relates to some aspect associated with the actual "Quest." Good Luck. I hope ATHENA is with you. The question for each image appears ABOVE the picture.

1. What do we know about these two societies. Identify and explain aspects of both.

2. Explain how this event connects to Crete?

3. How does this image relate to myth?

4. Explain the intellect of the Minoans through the use of the following images as catalysts.

5.  These images represent two different societies. Identify them and then discuss their differences.
