The Greek Myths contains some of the most thrilling, romantic, and unforgettable stories in all human history. From Achilles rampant on the fields of Troy, to the gods at sport on Mount Olympus; from Icarus flying too close to the sun, to the superhuman feats of Heracles, Theseus, and the wily Odysseus, these timeless tales exert an eternal fascination and inspiration that have endured for millennia and influenced cultures from ancient to modern. Beginning at the dawn of human civilization, when the Titan Prometheus stole fire from Zeus and offered mankind hope, the reader is immediately immersed in the majestic, magical, and mythical world of the Greek gods and heroes. As the tales unfold, renowned classicist Robin Waterfield creates a sweeping panorama of the romance, intrigues, heroism, humour, sensuality, and brutality of the Greek myths and legends. The terrible curse that plagued the royal houses of Mycenae and Thebes, Jason and the golden fleece, Perseus and the dread Gorgon, the wooden horse and the sack of Troy - these amazing stories have influenced art and literature from the Iron Age to the present day. And far from being just a treasure trove of timeless tales, The Greek Myths is a catalogue of Greek myth in art through the ages, and a notable work of literature in its own right.

This volume of the "Reaching Olympus" series, "Tales of Titans, Gods, and Mortals," is made up of 11 script-stories that re-tell favorite myths from Greek mythology. Readers can act out characters such as the mighty Heracles (Hercules), the beautiful Aphrodite, the foolish King Midas, and the monstrous Minotaur. Fun additions include a Mount Olympus Find-It picture puzzle and an interactive Tournament of the Gods game, where players create a mythology-based character and do battle with one another. The "Reaching Olympus" series uses classroom-tested Reader's Theater script-stories specifically designed for 6-12th grade students to re-tell the great myths and legends of world mythology. Reader's Theater is an innovative and powerful teaching tool that allows students to break away from silent reading and actively participate in an "acting out" experience where words and myth come to life! Each script-story is prefaced by a 2-page teacher guide providing a synopsis of the myth, relevant background information and commentary on the myth, anticipatory questions for pre-story discussion, essential questions to help analyze the "big ideas" behind each myth, recall questions to check reading comprehension, and instructions for teaching commonly-tested terms and literary devices using each script. Appendices include a glossary of important names and a pronunciation guide. Zachary Hamby is an author, illustrator, and experienced educator. He has spoken at many conferences including the NCTE National Convention on the many benefits of using Reader's Theater in the secondary classroom. He currently teaches high school in the Ozarks where he lives with his wife and children.
