Contemporizing Myths

Students examine ancient Greek myths and illustrate origin myths scenes in a contemporary setting. In this Greek myth lesson, students analyze Rembrandt’s painting The Abduction of Europa and discuss how the artist took an ancient Greek myth and contemporized it for a 17th-century Dutch audience. Students discuss the purpose of origin myth and illustrate a scene from a myth within a contemporary setting.

I am in my last year of graduate school, and having to do observation, and student teaching has been great. Lesson Planet was one of the sites mentioned one day, since then I've gain so many new creative ideas through the lessons. Thank you Lesson Planet
