This awesome handout includes directions for a creative project and a graphic organizer for pre-writing. Students are tasked with creating a travel brochure that features five of Odysseus' stops on his fateful journey. This project encourages abstract thinking by directing students to manufacture all elements of the brochure, including the cruise line name and the name of the ship.
This activity is great for any students who have studied The Odyssey, regardless of age level or ability. Points can be assigned to elements of the project by individual teachers. This assignment is idea for a long-tem project or final assessment. This also can be adapted for group work and could be left with a responsible class with art supplies and a substitute.
