Class Experience


By the end of this class, students should be able to:
•  Identify mythologies that exist in multiple countries and cultures (such as demon boars, tree spirits, evil twins, etc.)
•  Describe which Zelda bosses are modeled after enemies in Greek Mythology.
•  Explain the difference between mythology and folklore.
•  Recount some folklore and mythology that inspired creatures in the Zelda games.
•  Describe some mythology that originated from the Americas, Africa, Asia, and Australia, and what they have in common with the creatures and bosses of Zelda.
•  Develop an appreciation for the variety of Zelda games that have been created from 1986 to today.
50 minutes per week in class, and an estimated 0 - 1 hours per week outside of class.
I will be showing video clips from many different Zelda games. Some are rated T for Teen (such as Twilight Princess) and some (such as Breath of the Wild) are rated E10+, which means they are rated for age 10 years or older. While many children younger than 10 have played Breath of the Wild and enroll in this class, I feel it's important to state that I will be showing video clips from these games, and there will be some violence/battle scenes.  Also, in this class we discuss many scary mythical monsters, such as zombies. Sensitive souls may not appreciate these creepier creatures.
