"Mythological Women:  Magnificent and Maleficent

Testing dates are November 27 through December 15, 2017  

Please note:
Questions will focus on the the mythological women on the syllabus.  
     *The study guide (see below) is intended to help the student prepare for the exam.  
     *However, there may be questions on the exam that are not covered in the study guide.  
     *Knowing more is always 
a good thing.
     *If a question refers to a specific version of a Classical story, the question will cite the Greek/Roman author.

       The link Lesson plans and project ideas provides ideas for classroom projects.  The projects do not focus
       on one topic; each project may be tweaked to suit a specific topic or a range of topics, the time teachers
       have to allow students to work on a project, and whether students will be given class time or not.  Personally,
       students seem to respond to working in groups on different topics and then presenting their project to the class.
       Students also respond well to having their work displayed in the classroom, the school library, or on the school's walls.

Teachers do not have to use class time to "teach" the exam's curriculum. Students who love mythology are a
       special group of students who are willing to put time into study if they are given a 
specific focus (aka "the study guide),
       and often, teachers find 
that opening their classroom one day a week (or once every two weeks) to give students
       a safe space to study for the exam, 
either with other students or by themselves, gives them an opportunity to enjoy
       a topic 
they love.   If a teacher provides mythology books books (perhaps checked out from the library) and copies
       of the study guide, they will appreciate your efforts.
