The Metropolitan Museum, Percy Jackson, and Rick Riordan

Rick Riordan was a middle school teacher for years and used his own lessons to create an excellent Percy Jackson teacher guide.   And now he is going to be part of a Metropolitan Museum teacher workshop on March 14th. Bet it is going to be excellent!

Full-Day Workshop—Gods, Monsters, Myths: Exploring Greek and Roman Art through the Eyes of Percy Jackson

In the opening pages of Rick Riordan’s book The Lightning Thief, young Percy Jackson visits the Greek and Roman galleries at the Metropolitan Museum with his school class to witness the power and magic of the works of art as mythology springs to life. Join us for this special workshop for K–12 educators and discover the wonder and beauty of classical mythology as represented in great ancient Greek and Roman works of art. Discuss key works, develop teaching strategies, and receive resource materials before attending a talk by

Riordan in the afternoon.

See Teacher Programs for registration information. For further information about teacher programs please call 212–570–3985 or email teachers@metmuseum.org. Enrollment for all workshops is limited and on a first-come, first-served basis.
