I teach gifted elementary. I bought this to use in conjunction with the myths we are studying in class. After reading the myth, the kids would have a readers theater with the plays. I use it with all my grades 1-6. They LOVE it. Wish there were more!

This resource is fabulous. Too bad it is out of print. If you buy it, you will not be disappointed with it. Our middle school reading teachers use this book for their reading and/or social studies class.

Great book, and not just for kids. It enkindled in me a reborn enthusiasm for myths -- and sent me scurrying back, first to Graves, Hamilton and Campbell(I had to test the waters), then back to grand old men themselves--Sophocles, Homer,et al. My eight rear old daughter, an anti-school snob, began desultorily reading one of the plays. A few minutes later she had me acting in her own enthusiastic production--with her hamming up the best parts.(She especially liked Zeus.) We didn't stop until we performed all eight. And she's learned something about myths. A chatterbox, she smiles knowingly now when I call her "Echo."

I first encountered this item as a student teacher several years ago. I was working in a 6th grade classroom in California. The social studies curriculum here at that age is a study of ancient civilizations. One area of that is ancient Greece. This was a wonderful compliment to what they already learned and got them excited about the content. When I got my own class I sought out a copy of this book and was dismayed to find that it was out of print. I tracked down a used copy and was thrilled when it arrived. I again used it to enrich social studies. Now I teach 4th grade where we have an Oral Language portion of our day. We do a lot of readers theater during that time period so I am happy to get this book out again. The plays are interesting and there are parts both large and small. We put on a performance for families at the end of the year.

Used it to supplement my Greek mythology curriculum in middle school.

Students always loved it and learned tons from the plays.
