Volume I of the Greek Myths in the "Reaching Olympus" series features nine classic myths in interactive-script form, including Perseus and the quest for Medusa s head, Atalanta the female warrior, Jason's legendary quest for the Golden Fleece, Narcissus and Echo, Oedipus Rex, Orpheus and Eurydice, the inventor Daedalus, and the flight of Icarus.
Each play is prefaced by a teacher guide providing a synopsis of the myth, relevant background information and commentary on the myth, anticipatory questions for pre-play discussion, essential questions to help analyze the "big ideas" behind each myth, recall questions to check reading comprehension, and instructions for teaching commonly-tested terms and literary devices using each play. Supplemental materials include a temple-building game, a find-it puzzle with fifty different items to locate, a bonus myth (Bellerophon and Pegasus), a glossary of important characters, and a name pronunciation guide.
