Description

Class Experience

Students will learn about the ancient Greek and Roman pantheon 
Students will learn about ancient Greek and Roman culture 
Students will learn about ancient Greek and Roman art
While I want this class to be fun I also want students to learn! So at the end of each week of class, students will need to come prepared with either 2 new things they learned on their own outside of class that ties into the weeks topic, or come with 3 questions that tie into what we learned that was not covered in the class or that they want to learn more about. I want students to be engaged in learning more about mythology and use the tools that I give them in class to further their own exploration in the field. 

At the end of the course, students will write a paper on one god or goddess and compare and contrast their attributes in the Greek and Roman pantheon. This should include information on their origin, how they are shown in art, what their purpose was and if it differed in either culture's myths and any other information that is relevant to the god or goddess. Papers should be 2-3 pages long. 
1 hour 50 minutes per week in class, and maybe some time outside of class.
Greek mythology, as well as Roman mythology, has some topics which may be sensitive to students. Such topics as violence, incest, and rape are a part of the tellings of the gods and their stories. I do not in any way, shape or form condone these actions. Though they are a part of the telling of these stories, I will do my best to present them as sensitively as I can. As a historian, I think it is important to share these stories even though they are graphic because it shows us as humans what we should not do and what is not right to do. While these were all acceptable practices in Ancient Greece and Rome, they are not condoned at all in modern society. Should you be opposed to your student taking a class like this, please do not sign them up. I will do my very best to be as sensitive as I can with these topics and there will be a chance for active discussion about feelings after each time this comes up to assess the class as a whole and make sure that everyone is okay.
