Description

Class Experience

Learners will be exposed to Ancient Greek Mythology in an ongoing class. We will learn about the origins of the gods on Mount Olympus, their predecessors, their children, and their interactions with one another and the mortal men who worshipped them as gods. This class will explore dozens of stories and allow students to delve into the world of Ancient Greece and insert themselves into the story that has been woven and recorded over time. 
I am a trained educator for K-8th grade students, holding a bachelors of education for elementary. I have been in many classrooms teaching many different subjects to these age groups, so I am well practiced in presenting information in an appropriate way so that it isn't too intense for young learners. 
No homework per se, but students are encouraged to find their own information to expand on what we learn in class, fun facts, and interesting things to share with the class for the next lesson. 
Learners will not need to use any apps or websites beyond the standard Outschool tools.
1 hour 15 minutes per week in class, and maybe some time outside of class.
We will discuss the idea of Greek gods and goddesses in a mythical, fictional sense. There will be mention of babies, marriage, and infidelity (explained to students as unfaithfulness to a married partner by having other girlfriends or boyfriends). We will talk about war, killing, and battles, but we will not go into bloody details. 
The Greek Myths Complete Edition by Robert Graves is a main source of information along with several websites including greekmythology.com and my own background knowledge.
