Greek and Roman Mythology: Goddesses, Monsters, and Heroes

 

 As students act out ancient myths, they are encouraged to analyze and question today's presentations of heroism and evil. The mythology segment is successfully adapted to language and literature classes, science, civics, and art. Students love the dramatic presentations, but end up seeing the connections between classical and modern culture and why ancient goddesses appear on Nike sneakers!
