Ancient Greek Myth & Culture
Welcome to the wonders of ancient Greece! Join us as we learn about mighty gods, stalwart heroes, and terrifying monsters!
This course is broken into three units: Unit 1 (September) will introduce you to the Olympian gods and goddesses of Greece, Unit 2 (October) will impress you the feats of Perseus, Theseus, and Hercules, and Unit 3 (November) will charm you with tales of love and heartbreak. Along the way, we’ll discuss various aspects of Greek culture, such as clothing, art, music, and weaponry.
This is an introductory course, which means you don’t need to know anything about ancient Greece to participate! But if you are already acquainted with the topics at hand, additional instruction is available to keep you hooked!
This course meets once a week on Saturdays from 11-11:40am EST.
