Emphasizing critical thinking skills, these 40 lessons help students understand the pervasiveness of classical mythology in Western literature and its continuing cultural influence. The lessons—with teaching notes, background, and handouts—cover such topics as Olympian gods, comparative creation myths, comparative underworlds, heroes, the Trojan War, the Thebes cycle, and modern myths. Although designed to be used with Edith Hamilton's Mythology (available separately), these activities can be adapted to other texts. Grades 10–12. Bibliography. Spiralbound. 8½" x 11".
