Greek Mythology for Teensby Zachary Hamby
"Greek Mythology for Teens" takes classical mythology to a new level by relating ancient stories to the culture, history, art, and literature of today. The book uses the innovative approach of reader's theater to teach mythology to teens, asking them to act out the stories and become engaged in a common learning experience. By looking at topics instrumental to both mythology and modern culture, teens are encouraged to question topics such as heroism, foolishness, love, and more. Each chapter builds on a particular theme found in the central myth and includes activities, discussion questions, and exercises that connect the myth to the modern world and everyday life. Visually appealing sidebars also give background on Greek and Roman mythology and culture. "Greek Mythology for Teens" takes the classic myths taught in school and turns them into an engaging, interesting, and modern way of looking at old material.

It is bad.
The sample tricked me . I read the sample of the charecters of mythology in the sample and thats all it gave me . So I purchased the book for $11.99 and the book ended up being a bunch of lines for charecters for like a movie or something. It tricked me into buying it and I am not pleased
