Students of all ages are fascinated by the adventures of Odysseus, the labors of Hercules, and the battles of Achilles. These powerful and imaginative stories invite further study that rewards the students with a deeper level of understanding not only of the myths themselves, but of the people who originated these provocative stories. This course is designed for those who want to expand the critical thinking level of their students. Additionally, it is created for the teacher who would like to learn more about mythology in order to incorporate it into the study of history, literature, science, music, or art, and for the teacher who would like a systematic approach to the study of classical mythology.
