“Advice to Youth”
With your group, identify the satirical technique and concrete detail
that connects to the criticism and message that I have defined for you
Check with me to make sure your answer is correct
Share your answer with the class
Lunchroom Murder
You and a partner must attempt to determine which of the people in the
lunchroom killed Fannin. You will have to observe the details carefully.
There is enough evidence to help you explain most of what happened. In
working out the solution, consider the following questions.
Claim, Evidence, Warrant
Definition of Claim:
An assertion usually supported with evidence. Usually includes a support,
refute, or qualify statement.
Example: Students should not have cell phones in school because it is a
distraction in the classroom
Definition of Evidence: Evidence provided to bolster the Claim and support
the Warrant.
Backing: In 2010, cell phone violations were the second most disciplined
offense at Kentridge High School.
Definition of Warrant: the implied statement that creates a logical connection
between the Claim and the Backing.
Example: Even though cell phones are banned from school, it is assumed all
students carry a cell phone with them, and many of them send text messages
in class, but are never caught.

Reading Logs Odyssey: Cattle of the Sun
God
Below your reading logs answer the following questions:
1. What is Eurylochus’s “insidious plea” (lines 879-894)? If you were a member of the crew,
would you be swayed by this argument, or would you heed Odysseus’ warning? Do you
think murdering the cattle is justified, or is it sacrilege?
1. Odysseus constantly takes personal credit when things go right, but on lines 915-918 he
blames the gods for letting him fall asleep. What has happened, who does he blame, and
what does this say about Odysseys?
Missing Book Presentations
Take Diligent notes while your peers teach you about parts of the Odyssey
that you will not read.
Ask any questions you may have so there is clarity.
