This is a gallery walk activity that invites students to view, analyze and write about images related to The Odyssey. A gallery walk is an activity that requires students to circulate around the room while thoughtfully observing and analyzing visual content. I have included two websites within the product that feature different images related to The Odyssey (including pictures of related ancient art). In the included directions, I specify how you should select five images for students to perform a gallery walk with. Note that I also included a website link on the assignment itself in case you want students to select their own images, independently, to analyze.
PLEASE NOTE THAT SPECIFIC IMAGES ARE NOT INCLUDED WITH THIS PRODUCT (SINCE I DO NOT OWN THE IMAGES, I CANNOT SELL THEM). INSTEAD, THIS PRODUCT PROVIDES LINK(S) TO RESOURCES THAT FEATURE A NUMBER OF IMAGES YOU CAN CHOOSE FROM. I ENCOURAGE YOU TO ACCESS THE LINKED RESOURCES VIA THE PRODUCT PREVIEW BEFORE YOU BUY.
-During the exercise, students walk around the room in silence and view each related image; as they view, they respond to the questions on the handout, which require them to reflect, write, and make connections to the text. This activity can be followed up with paired and/or whole class discussion or extended writing.
I have included directions and a two page handout/graphic organizer.
