The People V. Prometheus

mentor-college-prometheus-grade-7Mentor’s Grade 7 students have been introduced to the mythology unit by reading creation stories and learning about how ancient cultures attempted to explain the inexplicable. Last week, Mrs. Quinn’s and Ms. Iyigun’s classes prepared for mock trials where Prometheus was being sued for fire theft! Students composed testimonies, opening and closing statements, and later reflected on how the trial changed some of their perspectives on characters they read about.
