Class Experience

Students will deepen their understanding and appreciation of ancient Greek mythology, and learn more about ancient Greek history and culture through the myths as well.
Some short readings may be assigned before a given class to facilitate discussion; some discussion questions may be posted in the classroom ahead of time as food for thought. 
Learners will not need to use any apps or websites beyond the standard Outschool tools.
45 minutes per week in class, and an estimated 0 - 1 hours per week outside of class.
Mythology has some grizzly topics that range from man-eating monsters to trips to the Underworld to suicides and murders, and loads in between. As this is a more advanced course, I won't be sugarcoating much in the presentation of the stories. Rather, we will dive deep into the WHY and HOW behind these stories, looking at the overall significance.
