Mythology for the Logic Stage
Single-semester course. In this course, we will study Greek and Roman myths as told by ancient authors such as Hesiod, Homer, and Ovid. We will learn how these ancient civilizations used stories of gods, monsters, heroes, and transformations to better understand the world around them, and what the myths tell us about their cultures. We’ll also compare these stories to mythology in other traditions, explore the impact of classical mythology on literature, art, and culture of later time periods, and discover elements of mythology in the world around us today. At the end of the course, students will use their knowledge of the functions and common themes of mythology to create their own modern myths.
