This 15 slide power-point thoroughly introduces students to Homer's "The Odyssey."
The power-point goes over what an epic is; the characteristics of an epic; characteristics of an epic hero; literary terms related to "The Odyssey"; background about Homer; background about the Trojan War; and an introduction to Odysseus as a character!
Also included in the notes section of the power-point is a script to use when teaching this power-point to students.
I suggest taking multiple days to go over this power-point so as to not overwhelm your students!
