Classical Mythology & More and the Medusa Mythology Exam Webinar

Mon., August 4 - 2:00 p.m. EST (1 p.m. CST): “Classical Mythology & More and the Medusa Mythology Exam,” Marianthe Colakis, Townsend Harris High School. Cost $99.

This webinar aims to generate discussion among teachers on preparing students for national examinations in mythology and the ways in which Classical Mythology & More can help. This book paraphrases the original sources as much as possible, keeping editorial comment and embellishment to a minimum. It offers short answer exercises for self-testing recall of names and events, and more thought-provoking questions to encourage deeper reflection. This webinar will also discuss the purpose of studying myths in secondary school and consider the ways they can still tell us about ourselves.

If you are a junior high or high school teacher, check with your school, district, or state department of education prior to enrolling to ensure you will qualify for credits towards professional development. In many states, these webinars may be treated like professional conferences.
