Greek Heroes in Popular Culture Through Time

Greek Heroes in Popular Culture Through Time is a series of short animated videos from The Open University. The videos offer an analysis of how Greek heroes have been portrayed in popular media over the years. The videos are probably a bit too edgy for a lot of high school settings, but I'll leave that decision to you. You can find the videos and transcripts on the course page, on YouTube, and on iTunes.



Applications for Education
These videos could help students make connections between the classics they have to read and movies they may have seen.
