Original Fairy Tale Antagonist

For tomorrow, please prepare a 5-7 sentence sketch of an original fairy tale antagonist. You design the bad guy, decide which protagonist┬áhe/she/it is in conflict with, and consider the setting in which they will “battle.” You may want to consider turning an existing fairy tale on its head and making the prince, princess, or hero into the antagonist. Be ready to share tomorrow!

“Orpheus and the Underworld”

Please complete the “Orpheus and the Underworld” packet:

  1. complete reading
  2. complete the notes in the margins
  3. answer the questions on the back page

For Periods 5 and 7:
Please complete the story map for the “Orpheus Goes to the Underworld” section of the packet.

Since we have the STAR Reading Assessment during English class tomorrow, I will collect this work next Tuesday.
