SAMPLE UNIT OUTLINES FOR YOUR MYTHOLOGY COURSE
 
Whether you teach mythology for a single unit, a whole semester, or an entire year, here are sample outlines to assist you. I am often asked, "How do you set up your mythology course?" Here is an answer to that question. Although my mythology course is a full year, some teachers only have a semester to teach mythology or just time enough for a short unit. For that reason I have included some variants.
 
These outlines make extensive use of the free materials on this site as well as the textbooks, tests, and downloads available for sale through this site at http://store.mythologyteacher.com
 
This course outline includes 90 days of instruction, covering virtually all major Greek and Roman myths. If you are interested in giving your students a thorough background in Greco-Roman mythology, this outline will fulfill your needs.
 
This course outline includes 90 days of instruction, focusing heavily on Norse mythology and the legends of King Arthur and the Knights of the Round Table. There is also material incorporated from Beowulf, Russian folklore, European fairy tales, Aesop's fables, Japanese mythology, and tales from The Arabian Nights.
 
FULL-YEAR MYTHOLOGY COURSE
To accommodate a full-year mythology course, simply follow the outline for the semester-long Greek and Roman mythology course first semester and the outline for the semester-long European and World mythology course second semester.
 
Learning about heroes and the Hero's Journey is a great unit to incorporate into any course. This unit outline includes 25 days of instruction. I have taught this unit in a regular English class, where it was one of the students' favorites.
 
 
The Reaching Olympus textbook series is available for sale at the Mythologyteacher.com Store and Amazon.com.
