How and why are ancient myths still relevant to modern audiences?
In this project students were learning more about the origin of myths and studying the central myths of ancient Greece and Rome. They were considering how and why myths still shape our cultures and ideas and how different societies engage with myths. They looked at how myths are retold from a modern perspective and used these as inspiration to create their own retelling of a myth.
I was especially impressed with the care and effort that some students put into their final retellings; it was clear some had really loved certain myths we had looked at and felt passionate about recreating the myth in a new and fresh way.
