Class Experience

Learners will be exposed to Ancient Greek Mythology in an ongoing class. We will learn about the origins of the gods on Mount Olympus, their predecessors, their children, and their interactions with one another and the mortal men who worshipped them as gods. This class will explore dozens of stories and allow students to delve into the world of Ancient Greece and insert themselves into the story that has been woven and recorded over time. 
I am a trained educator for K-8th grade students, I have been in many classrooms teaching many different subjects to these age groups, so I am well practiced in presenting information in an appropriate way so that it isn't too intense for young learners. 
No homework per se, but students are encouraged to find their own information to expand on what we learn in class, fun facts, and interesting things to share with the class for the next lesson. 
Students don't need to bring anything with them to class. We will view a slide show, discuss the myths in a story-telling manner, while welcoming discussion and questions along the way. Bring a mind eager to learn about the lives these gods lead!
Learners will not need to use any apps or websites beyond the standard Outschool tools.
45 minutes per week in class, and maybe some time outside of class.
We will discuss the idea of Greek gods and goddesses in a mythical, fictional sense. There will be mention of babies, marriage, and infidelity (explained to students as unfaithfulness to a married partner by having other girlfriends or boyfriends). We will talk about war, killing, and battles, but we will not go into bloody details. Many of the visual materials are paintings and statues that are scantily clad or indeed, nude, but those will be tastefully cropped so that not too much is revealed for the young learners. 
The Greek Myths Complete Edition by Robert Graves is a main source of information along with several websites including
