My Students

These are a diverse group of students that range from Freshmen to Seniors. They have opted to take an academic elective--Introduction to Mythology--and are generally well-motivated. Most enjoy reading and creative writing.

My students love to learn about mythology and read texts connected to it.

They particularly love young adult fiction built around Greek and Roman myths a la Percy Jackson. They clearly see the connection between reading to write and writing to read, especially as it connects mythology as a topic

My Project

In my mythology class, I want my students to not only learn these epic stories but to thoroughly enjoy them. We need more than a traditional textbook but modern, accessible texts.

This collection of books will help my students enjoy reading, become better writers, and grow to love Greek and Roman mythology.

Using a book club model, my students will have a variety of choices from which to select. Furthermore, they will have sources from which they can model both creative and expository writing. They are learning to read like writers and write like readers, from The Hero's Journey to literary analysis.
