Learners will learn about the Ancient Greek Mythological hero Odysseus and his journey home from the Trojan War.
I am a trained educator for K-8th grade students, 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.
Learners will not need to use any apps or websites beyond the standard Outschool tools.
45 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. Many of the visual materials are paintings and statues that are scantily clad or indeed, nude, but those will be tastefully cropped so that not too much is revealed for the young learners.
The Greek Myths Complete Edition by Robert Graves and the Odyssey by Homer are main sources of information along with several websites including greekmythology.com.
I love to learn, teach, read, and study stories from the past. Come learn with me!
