Mythology Book Talk

Each year our freshmen English I classes study classical Mythology.  Man, did I love teaching the literature in English I!  I mean, seriously,  The Odyssey, Mythology, Romeo and Juliet, To Kill a Mockingbird...you don't get much better than that!

I wish that when I was leading students through an exploration of classical mythology, I had shared more books with them that borrow from it.  Part of the reason why I didn't was because I didn't know many!  But, now I have more to share than I have the time and space to do so.  Today, I posted a book talk sharing four YA novels that are inspired by mythology or spin-offs.
