Myth Testers

Today I want to share a really cool site that~ Sarah Pennington~ a language arts middle school teacher at the school where I work~ uses with her kids. Students who are interested in mythology can take a national test through the American Classical League's Excellence Through Classics program.The website is www.etclassics.org.

Students pay $5 to take the exam~ and teachers send in their results. The test quizzes students on the gods and the Underworld~ with elementary students completing fewer questions if they choose. Middle schoolers can tackle the Iliad~

the Odyssey~ and other texts as well as test their knowledge ofAfrican myths~ Native American myths and Norse myths.
