This narrative writing lesson uses the classic story, The Odyssey, and the cliffhanger that the story concludes with to motivate students to write a good to bad story. Links to the story, book suggestions, a video example, plus all of the resources needed are included.
The story is highly engaging because it includes trickery and a Cyclops! What kid doesn’t love a good story about a Cyclops?
Built into the lesson are mini-lessons about writing leads and using dialogue. This lesson includes the following:
• Lesson plan
• Online video links
• Graphic organizer
• Fun Cyclops craft to enhance students’ published work
• Viking ship to color and create their own picture
Everything you need to engage students and have them produce a strong final project is included in this easy to use, no prep lesson.
