Engage Secondary English Language Arts students with the Titans’ story, the second-generation gods, and goddesses of Greek Mythology. Learn each Titan’s backstory, where they came from, their relationship to the Giants and the Olympians. There is a clash of the Titans, that’s for sure. Hesiod called it the Titanomachy. Use this fully packed three-day lesson plan, designed especially for students aged 13-17 years old.
