Percy Jackson is mighty with his sword; his creator, Rick Riordan, is mighty with his pen. Try the writing methods Riordan uses to weave a siren spell. You will need to prepare by reading the first book of the series, The Lightning Thief. In class we will mine it for models of how to develop vivid characters and hold readers across chapter breaks, and for the benefits of borrowing story elements from past literature. We’ll craft vivid descriptions and humorous wisecracks, similar to those in Percy’s narration. You’ll create your own Camp Half Blood adventure. Meanwhile, we’ll enjoy exploring ancient Greek culture: hear stories from myths and history, attempt a Greek poetic form, examine Greek artifacts from museums around the world. We will also look at how we still borrow from ancient Greece in our language, government, culture, architecture, and art—to see that ancient Greece still lives in us.
