Great for the classroom, seen in Common Core in various places, great additives to units with needed themes. Here are a few of my favorites to help you out.

Variations of “star-crossed” doomed love-Pyramus and Thisbe, Orpheus and Eurydice

“Girl Power” and then not some-The Calydonian Hunt, Atalanta’s Race

Sacrifice of one for the greater good (I teach this with my Cold Equations Scifi short story by Tom Godwin/Spock takes a spotlight here.) – Prometheus, Alcestis
