Students will learn about Hercules, Eurystheus, Copreus, Ares, Athena, Hera, Zeus, Cycnus, Busiris, Prometheus, Atlas and his daughters the Hesperides. Students will be encouraged to speak, ask questions, and be questioned themselves with a focus on comprehension skills and critical thinking.
55 minutes per week in class, and maybe some time outside of class.
