Curated by Michael Douma. Greek Gods were edited and arranged by Amy Rafferty (photo at right). Dr. Amy Rafferty began working on world mythologies while studying religion at Syracuse University. Her dissertation included extensive research in Greek and Roman texts, particularly those of Homer and Cicero. Her particular interests are in modern language and etymologies informed by ancient mythologies, and the search for original sources through form and text criticism.

Additional Information

Family Tree of Greek Gods incorporates interactivity into the educational material presented.

Incorporating interactivity into the learning experience allows certain subjects to be more easily taught. Interactivity also changes the dynamic of learning, from one of passivity to one of engagement. This enriches the learning experience and leads to better assimilation of information.

When designing interactive lessons, it helps to be guided by theories about how people learn. Read IDEA’s articles about three theories of learning: Social Cognitive Theory, Constructivism and Cooperative Learning.
