Product Description
This 1-page writing activity relates directly to the Fagles translation of Homer's Odyssey; this activity would also work ideally as an element of writing instruction to help students revise essays responding to the prompt also available. Students are asked here to concisely revise a 300-word paragraph to 100 words by omitting needless quotations and filler, following the best advice from The Elements of Style. See my own Odyssey study guide, quizzes, writing prompts, review, and unit test for ideal materials to correspond with this activity. This activity has been designed with an honors curriculum in mind, but can easily be amended and scaffolded for a mainstream course.
