Description

Class Experience

Throughout the class, students will:
- Develop skills to compare and contrast myths about dragons from different parts of the world.
- Learn about shared world mythologies.
- Discuss how stories can teach us about the storytellers.
- Learn many fun facts and interesting tales about dragons from a variety of cultures and time periods.
OPTIONAL: During our final class, students will be invited to share an imaginary dragon of their own making. They can combine elements of the dragons discussed in previous weeks or make up characteristics from scratch! Students who enjoy drawing may bring their illustration to share with the class, but they are also free to present their dragon by simply explaining the traits of their dragon in a short (1-2 minute) presentation. Please note that this is optional, and students will not be pressured to participate outside of their comfort level.
Learners will not need to use any apps or websites beyond the standard Outschool tools.
55 minutes per week in class, and maybe some time outside of class.
This class discusses dragons, death, and destruction. While learning about ancient and medieval myths about dragons, we will encounter stories that feature violence. This includes dragons who are killed by heroes and dragons who kill or attempt to kill humans. We will not go into more detail than necessary. For example, Heracles had to cut off all the Hydra's heads in order to defeat it.

As in any class on mythology, some stories relate to ancient religions. This includes dragon gods and goddesses revered in the ancient world. We will address these beliefs from a scientific point of view.
