Greek Mythology

Our Greek Mythology lesson plan teaches students about Greek mythology as a whole as well as particular myths and tropes. Students practice identifying some Greek myths and use popular tropes to create their own modern myth.

Our Greek Mythology lesson plan introduces students to Greek mythology. Many students have heard some of the myths and stories, yet they do not know their source. During this lesson, students are asked to use their creative writing skills and work with a partner to create a new, modern myth following specific guidelines; they then present their modern myth to the class, sharpening their public speaking and presentation skills. Students are also asked to decide which god/goddess people in given situations would most likely turn to in Ancient Greece in order to demonstrate their understanding of the roles of each god or goddess.

At the end of the lesson, students will be able to define myth and identify various Greek myths and explaining their purpose.

    Excellent Resource

    This online resource site has wonderful materials and lesson plans. I downloaded an outstanding lesson plan on Greek gods and mythology for an elementary ESL class. I highly recommend Clarendon Learning and will use this learning site again.
