Mythology: Gods, Monsters, and Lost Treasures 6-7

Summer Language Arts

An ancient island has been found and a protected secret is buried under its sand!

In this unique and energetic course designed for students entering grades 6 or 7, students will have a rare opportunity to develop their writing and problem-solving skills through the worlds of ancient mythologies. Much like real-life scholars and professionals today, students will be tasked to reconstruct a myth based only on material and literary archaeological evidence. Each day in class, students will study myths from around the world and investigate “ancient” artifacts recovered from a long-lost civilization. From shattered mosaics to fragments of ancient poems, students will embark on an adventure of a lifetime to effectively reconstruct the mythic narrative hidden within the artifacts.

By taking this course, students will accelerate their core language arts skills, such as the following:

The final day of class is the AoPS Academic Conference, an enthusiastic meeting-of-minds where students will present their reconstructed myths to a body of their peers. Through this conference, students will work together to find the hidden meaning behind their myths, and, perhaps, unlock a secret they didn’t expect!

This two-week course meets Monday through Friday for three hours each day.

Space is very limited for our summer programs. Please do not wait until the last minute to enroll. If there are more than two weeks before the course starts, a $200 deposit will be due when enrolling, with the balance due two weeks before the course begins.

Summer Enrollment Deadline: Summer enrollment for each class closes one week after the class starts.
