Myth and Modernity
This class is for students who are interested in myths, in history, in the stories upon which our world is founded. Have you ever wondered why the Big Dipper is called the Big Dipper or why it never dips below the horizon? Or the story behind any constellation we see nightly in the sky? Do you know where the Apple logo came from and what it means? The answers to these questions are more scandalous and ominous than you might first assume, and they originate in some of the stories and works we'll cover in this class. We will pay special attention to developing close reading and critical thinking skills, clear communication, problem solving, and productive collaboration. By the end of the course, students will have gained a deeper and more valuable understanding of the world around them and the connection between the present and the origins of human society. Class is worth 1 English credit.
