Mythweb is a great website for anyone who teaches mythology. Its contents are easy to navigate, and the encyclopedia is full of information. When I teach The Odyssey to my freshmen each year, I always print off a few copies of Mythweb's synopsis as an adaptation for students with IEPs or RtI students. The myths of the various heroes are shortened, but don't expect it too be too childish for students either; the vocabulary can be somewhat challenging at times. Some of the myths contain animations, which are always crowd-pleasers in my classroom. I also really enjoy the "Today" section, which gives examples of modern vocabulary words with mythology-related origins.
