MythWeb

By Joel Skidmore
Citing from some of the greatest ancient texts, this site offers a comprehensive mythology of the Greek gods and heroes and their stories. A few of the stories offer animated slide shows to assist in the storytelling process. The stories are all comprehensive, told in easy-to-follow language, though they often quote from texts such as those authored by Homer. A new section of the site explores the question of whether the Greek myths are still relevant today. There is also an encyclopedia of terms and a teachers' section.

"I started teaching at 55. It's never too late. I owned gymnastics schools for 30. It was getting to rough on my body so I went back to college at 50. I love teaching children. What a glorious profession!"
