Description

Group Experience

This class is taught in English.
Students will learn new short myths, fun facts about mythology, and have the chance to share their favorite stories with each other. Students will work on skills like comparing and contrasting, critical thinking, and social skills.
I have a BA in history with an emphasis on Ancient and Medieval periods. I have experience tutoring students in all subjects, particularly history and English. In all of my mythology classes, I encourage discussion about myths while keeping it age-appropriate. This is a safe environment for students to learn and share about mythology at an age-appropriate level.
Welcome to our Group! We want all of our learners to feel comfortable, connected, and safe. That's why we have 3 rules we ask you to follow: Be Kind, Be Safe, and Be Respectful.

Be Kind - Help all learners feel welcome and included.
Learners from all over the world, with different backgrounds, races, ethnicities, abilities, gender identities, religions and body types, participate in our Group. Always be nice and make others, especially new learners, know that they belong and are welcome. Teasing, name calling, or bullying anybody in our community? Nope. Not happening here

Be Safe - Keep your personal information private and never ask other learners for theirs.
Personal things are personal. We want to keep you safe on Outschool, but we also want YOU to understand how to be safe when you're meeting other learners or teachers. Keep your full name, home address, gaming or social media name, email, and school name private.

Be Respectful - Treat others how you want to be treated.
Keep language clean and information you share safe. If you wouldn't say it or share with your grandma, don't do it here. Swear words, racy videos, and violent images are not allowed. Treat Outschool like a public place, and when in doubt, keep things covered.

A Note About Age-Appropriate Myths:
Please keep in mind that some myths are not always appropriate for all age groups. While everyone is encouraged to discuss mythology here, this group will not discuss myths that involve sensitive or offensive topics. Again, if you wouldn't talk to your grandma about a certain myth, don't share that one here.
View and create posts any time, at your own pace..
As with all mythology, some stories can include sensitive topics like violence and death. I will closely monitor all discussions to ensure that language and descriptions remain at an age-appropriate level. Sometimes, these stories can include adult themes. We will NOT discuss those stories or details in this group.
