MYTHOLOGY FOR TEENS:  CLASSIC MYTHS IN TODAY'S WORLD

Mythology for Teens takes classical mythology to a new level by relating ancient stories to the culture, history, art, and literature of today. By looking at topics instrumental to both mythology and modern culture, teens are encouraged to question topics such as the repercussions of war, vanity and greed, the workings of fate, the nature of love, the roles of women in society, revenge and forgiveness, the meaning of life, and national identity.

The majority of high school humanities and Advanced Placement courses teach classical mythology by simply retelling myths. By using teen-friendly Reader's Theater scripts to tell the legends, in combination with activities, discussion questions, and exercises that help students apply what they've learned to real life, Mythology for Teens takes the classic myths taught in school and turns them into an engaging, interesting, and fresh way of looking at old material.
