Day 3: "Arachne"

Today, readers will continue to analyze the myth, "Arachne" by Jean Lang. In this analysis, readers will examine how Jean Lang resolves the conflict between Arachne and Athené, by focusing on the consequences both of the main characters receive. By analyzing this final episode, where both characters experience negative consequences due to pride, students will be set up for success for the final culminating writing task.
