8E2 Sci-Fi Mythology

Sign up or log in to save this to your schedule and see who's attending!

This exploration of sci-fi mythology will include a visuals and short movie clips.  

Some of the modern epics I plan to include in my discussion are:  Lightning Thief, Star Wars, Avatar, Hunger Games, Lord of the Rings, and Star Trek.

As a classroom teacher, my emphasis will be on using these modern epics to spark students’ interest in the classics.  I have an example of Oedipus Rex/Antigone as a Star Wars style saga that I will share.
