Description

Class Experience

Students will learn about the mythological background of the Trojan War.
Students will understand how the Iliad became the point of cultural literacy for the Ancient Greeks. 
Students will explore the Hero Cycle concept embedded in Homer's work.
Students will understand how the exciting story of the Trojan War inspired Renaissance and Baroque Art.
I have taught honors Ancient, World and European History for the last 30 years in both private and public schools. 
Students are encouraged to conduct independent research between classes to help promote more engaging discussions during class. 
Students will be able to engage Homer's stories through the class presentations and handouts.
55 minutes per week in class, and an estimated 0 - 1 hours per week outside of class.
Homeric tales are very vivid in their description of battles during the Trojan War, yet this version is redacted so that some of the literary genius is revealed to appreciate the detail, yet other aspects are either minimized or omitted for the younger audience. All art work used is either from the Renaissance, Baroque, or later and is appropriate for this age group. 
Students will be able to engage Homer's stories through the class presentations and handouts. They are, of course, encouraged to conduct independent research on their own time between classes.
