I use this Odyssey vocabulary list of forty words as the bell ringer for class while reading The Odyssey. We do two-five words per day. I then post the words on a word wall, and we review several of them daily.
- both a Powerpoint version and a Smartboard Notebook version
- all Odyssey vocabulary words defined with parts of speech
- my students' favorite vocabulary review activity (on last slide)
- a final vocabulary quiz in Word so it is fully editable
- a key for the final quiz
The words with an asterisk next to them are words that are commonly found on the SAT vocabulary test. I use the list with Pre-AP English students, so they appreciate knowing the words that they are likely to see again.
The word sort review activity is at the end of the slides is one of my students’ favorites and every year, they tell me that activity helped them learn the words more than any other review activity. It’s also fun.
I also have The Odyssey Satire Project as a resource for a final project for The Odyssey.
