Prepare for the exam

This year's theme is 

"Where Have All the Heroes Gone?"

   Testing dates are November 26 through December 14, 2018


Word and PDF documents for the study guide will be posted after June 15, 2018.

This document is to be used as a GUIDE for student research.


Please note:

     *The Study Guide has been revised to add links to www.theoi.com.  
     *
Questions will focus on the heroes given on the syllabus.  
     *The study guide (see below) is intended to help the student prepare for the exam, 
        however, 
there may be questions on the exam that fit the theme but are not covered 
        in the study guide.  
     *Knowing more is always a good thing.
     *If a question refers to a specific version of a Classical story, the question will cite the
       Greek/Roman author.

Teachers, feel free to use the projects posted in 
Lesson Plans and Project Ideas.

Also, t
eachers do not have to use class time to "teach" the exam's curriculum.  Generally, students who love mythology are a special group of students who are willing to study if they are given a specific focus (aka "the study guide).  Often, teachers find that opening their classroom one day a week (or once every two weeks) to give students a safe space to study for the exam, either with other students or by themselves, gives students an opportunity to enjoy learning more about a topic they love.   If a teacher provides mythology books books (perhaps checked out from the library) and copies of the study guide, they will appreciate your efforts.


 If you order books from Amazon, the American Classical League and the Medusa Mythology Exam Committee members would appreciate your ordering through the American Classical League's account (click on this link, ACL Amazon Account).


 If students would like to test their knowledge, one way to review would be to take the mythology tests posted on the Florida Junior Classical League web page (http://www.fjcl.org/past-fjcl-tests--certamen.html).  Do note, however, that these tests will cover more than just this year's Exam topic.
