Building Vocabulary: Working with Words about the Key Elements of Mythology

Build vocabulary one word at a time. Scholars work to create word models to describe the key elements of myths. After viewing and discussing glossaries, they begin working in triads on their models that include the word, synonyms, antonyms, a symbol, and a sentence. They then complete a class gallery walk to view all of the word models.
