Let's dig deep into the mythologies of Hera, Athena, Artemis, Demeter and Aphrodite. Good for fans of Percy Jackson too...

Class experience

US Grade 4 - 7
You will deepen your knowledge of the five major goddesses of Greek Mythology: Hera, Athena, Artemis, Demeter and Aphrodite.

You will learn fifteen myths, some of which are more well-known and some that I am sure you will be learning for the first time.
I am a specialist teacher of poetry and mythology, working both on Outschool and in schools in East London, England, where I teach Homer's Iliad to 500+ children aged 8-11 each year. I am a published children's author of educational fiction and non-fiction, with two titles being explicitly about mythology - 'Myths Don't Frighten Me' and 'Legends of Land and Sky'.

I am a qualified primary school teacher, and have been teaching since 2011 in East London. I have experience as a classroom teacher and as an Assistant Headteacher. All of this experience empowers me to teach highly effectively, and to guide deep and challenging learning conversations with children aged 8+ in ways that are humorous, intellectual and supportive.
Homework Offered
Students are encouraged to share their responses to the videos' 'Big Question' each week, but this remains optional. My main wish is for students to enjoy soaking up the stories and facts in the videos.

Greek Mythology - by  definition - contains lots of tales of war and conflict. As I do in my live classes, I ensure that I strike the correct balance for the age group, and all content is age-appropriate. 
Like I do with my live classes, I draw upon a rich wealth of source materials, including translations of ancient texts, including but not limited to:

Homer's Iliad and Odyssey
Homeric Hymns
Ovid's Metamoprhosis
Hesiod's 'Theogony'
Hesiod's 'Works and Days'
Stephen P Kershaw's 'The Greek Myths'
The Penguin Dictionary of Classical Mythology
The New Larousse Encyclopaedia of Mythology
