Cultural Literacy: Bacchus

OK, here is a Cultural Literacy worksheet on Bacchus. He is, as my late, great friend Fritz Hewitt once said, “the god of rave-up.” If you prefer, the reading in this worksheet puts it, a bit more academically: Bacchus is the “Greek and Roman god of wine and revelry.” This is a half-page worksheet with a reading of five sentences–all short–and three comprehension questions. Even a reading this short, from The New Dictionary of Cultural Literacy, hits all the bases, including associating Bacchus with Dionysus, which is useful.

If you find typos in this document, I would appreciate a notification. And, as always, if you find this material useful in your practice, I would be grateful to hear what you think of it. I seek your peer review.
