Day 4: "Arachne"

Today, readers will dive even deeper into the text to build familiarity with the main characters, Arachne and Athené, and how they develop in the story. Readers will look at specific words and phrases that Lang uses to develop these characters, and examine how this language impacts the resolution of the plot. This will aid readers in the culminating task, where students will take their understanding of the characters and apply it to how Lang shapes the theme.
