Description

Class Experience

Students will obtain a more comprehensive understanding of the Greco-Roman myths that influence the Percy Jackson Book 1 "The Lightening Thief" and understand the literary role of "the hero". 
I am fascinated by the Greco-Roman world; its history, literature, culture, and languages. I have an M.A. in Classics and have taught Roman history, as well as other Classics related subjects, to a range of ages and skill levels online and in a traditional classroom.  This course is meant to be fun! I have read the Percy Jackson series many times, so I thought it would be fun to combine my two passions into this exciting class that explores the world of Percy Jackson through classics.

55 minutes per week in class, and maybe some time outside of class.
