Class Experience

Students will learn the etymology of Latin and Ancient Greek that is used in Harry Potter and related English words. They will also learn how Classical mythology deeply influenced the Harry Potter series through the influence of mythological creatures.
I am fascinated by the Greco-Roman world; its history, literature, culture, and languages. I have an M.A. in Classics and have taught Roman history, as well as other Classics related subjects, to a range of ages and skill levels online and in a traditional classroom.  This course is meant to be fun! I have read the Harry Potter series more times than I can count, so I thought it would be fun to combine my two passions into this exciting class that explores the world of Harry Potter through classics. 
No materials are needed for this class.

55 minutes per week in class, and maybe some time outside of class.
