6th Grade English Students Deliver Greek God and Goddess Monologues

This week, sixth grade English students wrote and performed monologues from the perspective of Greek gods and goddesses in the modern world. Donning creative costumes and props, they ventured onto the stage of the Underground Theater and disappeared into the roles of Greek mythological figures such as Zeus, Aphrodite, Poseidon and Artemis. Each Middle Schooler delivered an enthralling speech describing their character’s family history, overall feelings toward the other Olympians and perspective on current issues, especially ones affecting New York City. From Poseidon going on an impassioned rant about water pollution to Aphrodite launching her own dating app, the students demonstrated a clear understanding of Greek mythology, impressive creative writing skills and a flair for the dramatic.
