In this chatty and funny ongoing myth class, we will tell and re-enact a new story from Ancient Greece each week. Serious intellectual silliness.
US Grade 3 - 6
Enter the Outschool Olympus! You can join us whenever you like! In each of our weekly classes, we explore a different story or figure from Ancient Greece. Some of them you will know - like the Gorgon Medusa and Apollo - but some you might not know, like Niobe and Nike. This class is designed to be fun, conversational, rich and challenging. Ancient Greece has so many myths, and there are so many ways we can explore them - as storytellers, poets, artists, sculptors, archaeologists, historians...
You are going to learn a whole lot of stories about Ancient Greece: this includes myths, legends, stories of heroes and war, and also the stories of the gods and goddesses. You will get lots of chances to share your own stories and facts, and to learn with each other in the class too. We will focus on how to be an engaging storyteller and how to use Ancient Greek tales to help our thinking. This is a class to build your confidence and friendships, just as much as your speaking and Greek knowledge. We will have a lot of fun in class with all these weird stories.
I have ten years of experience as a primary school teacher in East London, and am currently working as a specialist English teacher in my own education consultancy. I teach poetry, classics, creative writing and public speaking, and am skilled at supporting children to talk openly, think deeply, and feel comfortable in their learning communities.
Homework OfferedThere is no compulsory homework at all, but we will all be encouraged to read and share stories that link to the interests of the class. I will share books occasionally in class and can provide book suggestions for any interested learners or parents.
Not needed in general, but if specific things are required for a particular week, I will always notify well in advance.
Learners will not need to use any apps or websites beyond the standard Outschool tools.
The Ancient Greek stories are often violent. I am an experienced primary teacher, and tell them in a way that is appropriate, at a level similar to that found in children's literature. I make it quite cartoonish where I can, and avoid stories that are too mature in their content.

UPDATE I will soon be coming away from Outschool, as I will be teaching in schools across India. When I get back to the UK, I may be scheduling some Outschool classes, mostly for students I currently work with, but am not putting the dates in...
