Welcome to Online Mythology-- for Spring 2017! This class has the same curriculum as Mythology your classmates may take, however in ONLINE MYTH we will incorporate more technology, you will be required to work independently AND we will meet ONCE A WEEK (Wednesdays) in ITC Lab.  We will READ, WRITE, and ENJOY lots of Myths and Stories about heroes.

In a non-virtual classroom, I usually begin by telling the class a little about myself. By the time you read this we will have already met in a real classroom and talked a little about the course and how I came to teach it. We will indeed meet in REAL time once a week. A virtual classroom, however, this also a place where you can interact with your teacher and classmates! Early in the week in an blog called Online Mythology Blog-?s for Class, you will be telling me a little about yourself. Nothing too personal--more info about why you took mythology and what you already know about MYTHOLOGY that will help when we jump into the class Discussion Forum in Week Two.

That said, this first week we will try to get all the rules, game plan, techno details and expectations laid out. I call all these things...methods . Hopefully there will be time to get to the first few mythology assignments as well. (This will always be called content.)
1. Every week of Online Mythology is a separate subsite that I will turn "on" or "off."
2. Each week has a "homepage" that will be the place to check in for assignments, readings and announcements.
