Greek of the Week Season One: Mythology of Gods, Beasts and Heroes

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.

Description

Class Experience

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.
There 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.
No assessments or assignments - this is about the joy of shared storytelling. 

I am always happy to message with parents, and actually, I find that this is more useful. I want the class to be as enjoyable and helpful as possible for them.
55 minutes per week in class, and maybe some time outside of class.
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.
