Red Comet is introducing “Mythology & Folklore: Legendary Tales” as part of its efforts to launch during this summer several new online electives to supplement its high school curriculum. Mythology and folklore have been used since the first people gathered around the fire as a way to make sense of humankind and our world. Most mythical and folklore legends combine mighty heroes, angry Gods & Goddesses and cunning animals to create a deeply engaging storyline. From ancient Europe, India and Egypt, these engaging stories continue to enthrall us even to this day. Modern day writers have written several bestsellers that have capitalized on this theme of good winning over evil.
This course focuses on the many myths and legends woven into cultures around the world. Starting with an overview of mythology and the many kinds of folklore, the student journeys with ancient heroes as they slay dragons and outwit the gods, follow fearless warrior women into battle and watch as clever animals outwit those stronger than themselves. They explore the universality and social significance of myths and folklore, and see how these themes still shape our society today.
Red Comet offers a complete online program that is both rigorous and engaging.
