Class Experience

Students will improve their understanding of Greek gods, goddesses, heroes, and monsters, which will provide them with a strong foundation for later (teenage/adult) study of Western Literature. 
I have both a BA in Ancient History and Classical Languages (Gordon College, MA) and a MA in Ancient Greek and Roman Studies (Brandeis University, MA). I have been teaching since 2008. For many years I worked with students in grades 3-8, and Myth Mondays quickly became a favorite fixture in their Latin classes. 
No official homework is assigned or graded; though I’m always happy to check in with parents/guardians to discuss student engagement or progress if interested!
I recommend keeping a pen/pencil and paper during class to jot down any questions and save them for designated Q/A times. This is, however, not a requirement.
Learners will not need to use any apps or websites beyond the standard Outschool tools.
30 minutes per week in class, and maybe some time outside of class.
These stories contain man-eating monsters (one of which exists because a human lady fell in love with a bull...), creepy visits to the underworld, death, dismemberment, kidnapping, fighting/bloodshed, deceit, kids blatantly disobeying parents, and more. I have adapted the stories to make them exciting and age-appropriate in terms of the language and "mature" content, but I'm not turning these into Disney movies - I will retain as much of the authentic myth as possible with child-appropriate language. Also, it’s worth noting that some events in myths are just plain WEIRD. I do my best to make these stories make sense to a modern audience while retaining the integrity of the Ancient Greek way of thinking. If you’re ever concerned about a story’s content for a particular week, feel free to message me in advance and I can give you a breakdown of the events.
