GCSE Classical Civilisation Resources


I have been teaching the Myth and Religion and Homeric World/Odyssey topics since the inception of the new OCR GCSE Classical Civilisation specification. These Dropbox folders, currently shared with 15 different schools also teaching these Units, represent an updated (and, in some cases, updating) set of resources for teaching the entire course, with the occasional help of the Bloomsbury textbook.

Please feel free to use the resources yourself by opening the Dropbox links and downloading them for your use. I would appreciate you letting me know how you get on with them, and whether they work for you!

– If you need more, we’ve got Greek Myth Comix resources at 50% off, some of them about 60p , such as Odyssey Book 1 (and other books) ComixOdysseus and Gladiators paper dolls, the Olympians Colouring Book and The Trojan War Playset, all for download and print. And, a TON of FREE Myth comics at GreekMythComix.com including a list that are specifically useful for the GCSE.

– The Greek Myth Comix Youtube site has a growing selection of videos for learning and revision, including for the Remote Learning and Teaching situation we now find ourselves in!
