In Classical Mythology, we will explore the mythology of Ancient Rome and Greece and its influence on modern literature, art, and society. Classical Mythology is open to all Westlake students, and no prior knowledge of Greek or Latin is required. Our introduction to the ancient world will lead to a study of cultural, historical, geographical, and linguistic topics that may include Greek and Roman authors and literary genres, history, daily life and interactions, and mythology. Students will hone their skills through research and analysis, projects and presentations, production and performance, competition-style games, and authentic assessments. Students may choose to take the Medusa Mythology Exam, at their own expense, in the Spring semester.

Roman Cultures is a one-semester course that introduces the study of ancient Roman culture from its foundations through the rise and fall of the Empire.

This class is not lecture-driven and provides an opportunity for students to explore topics of interest to them with assistance and guidance from the Latin teacher. Students will collaborate to design, prepare, and present what they learn through authentic assessment.

This course is designed to engage students as novice researchers and to enrich and enliven the study of Latin and ancient history. It is open to all students, and no knowledge of Latin is required.
