Mythology Experts

I am teaching a class on Mythology to 7th grade students and I am looking for mythology experts to skype with my students throughout the quarter.  I would love experts from Greece to expose my students to different cultures.  How do I go about trying to connect with experts?  Are there any experts in this community?

    Mary,

     

    I am not sure what you mean by experts, but I do a lot with mythology at the high school level (grades 9, 10, and 11) and I would be willing to help you out.  One thing that I do lately and which has proven popular with the students is the mythology of Superman as a contemporary version and mash-up of a number of Judaic, Christian, Greek, Roman, and Nordic myths.

     

    I also Skype, did a September 11th lesson with a friend's class over Skype last year (I am in California, he is in Missouri).

     

    Let me know if I can be of help!

    Hi Mary,

     

    I think your idea of connecting students with mythology experts via Skype is great!  In addition, I wanted to make sure you knew about some great resources on Myths and Heroes provided by ArtsEdge one of our Thinkfinity partners. You may also want to take a look at Greek Mythology:  Cultures & Art by ArtsEdge that features lesson materials appropriate to 7th grade.

     

    I look forward to hearing more about your success in getting your students connected with mythology experts.
