Students will be able to listen and respond to the characters and events in Greek Myths. They will be able to write a song, rap, or skit to show their understanding of the underlying ideas/themes/messages.
I have 40 years experience teaching all areas of English. I have taught Mythology in public school for at least 10 years.
Homework will be optional. Students are welcome and encouraged to work on their ideas at home, but are not required to do so.
Students will need some way to record their ideas. Paper/pen/pencil or typed document are all just fine.
Informal assessment will be based on the final poem/rap or skit. Students will receive feedback from me and from peers.
2 hours per week in class, and maybe some time outside of class.
