Opening Session
Clean Classics Summarized: The Iliad

Work Session
We’re going to finish reading The Iliad today! I am reasonably sure these copies are correct and not missing any pages, but you never know….so be on the lookout.

After we read the ending of the story together, I want to discuss it as a class briefly and recap what happens after it ends. You know, how the Trojan War ends and that sort of

Finally, we will finish out the day by working on the Critical Reading questions at the end of the selection. You will also have some time tomorrow to finish them up.

3-2-1: For a ticket out the door, consider the ending of The Iliad and write down 3 things you found interesting, 2 things that were surprising, and 1 thing you would have changed if you had been writing the story.
