You're so talented!
Mythology People is a space to get even deeper into your obsession with myths from around the world. Many of you will be fans of Greek, Roman, Egyptian and Norse Mythologies. Maybe you can't stop reading the Percy Jackson books, and other Rick Riordan creations? Here you have a space to learn more with other people who are interested in the same stuff. And the brilliant thing about it being global is that we can learn from each other too - maybe we have some experts on Korean, Japanese,...
This class is taught in English.
We will all deepen our love of mythology, and our knowledge. We will all take part in a fun and respectful mixed-age community of myth fans aged between 8-14.
I am a highly experienced teacher of students in this age range. On Outschool, I have been successfully running two ongoing classes, with students in this age range. One is explicitly social - and it is the ongoing version of Odd Behaviours - and the other is academic, but with a rich social element. In schools in East London, I am currently a specialist English teacher, working on inclusive projects that combine social and academic learning. These projects include residential poetry retreats with children aged 9 to 11- on these trips, I bring students together who do not know each other from different schools, and facilitate warm and lively learning communities.

Mythology often contains themes of violence, and these are unavoidable but will always be handled sensitively and in an age-appropriate manner. If your child is averse to stories of blood and so on, they may not be a good fit for the class. All talk and sharing will be at a level that is age appropriate for all of the learners in our potential range of 8-14. Younger learners will have the chance to learn from older learners, and all talk will be sensitively moderated.
