Product Description

Are you looking for a more engaging way to teach the Odyssey? These five 40-minute script-stories bring Homer's epic to life by allowing your students to inhabit the classic characters. Although dialogue and touches of humor have been added to increase engagement, the adaption is incredibly faithful to the original epic.

Included in this 73-page download are five script-stories and two handouts designed for grades 7-12:

"Searching for Odysseus" (script-story)

"On Calypso's Isle" (script-story)

"In the Cave of the Cyclops" (script-story)

"Circe the Witch" (script-story)

"Return to Ithaca" (script-story)

"The Sirens" (handout)

"Scylla and Charybdis" (handout)

Each script-story has a 2-page teacher guide providing story summary, relevant background information, anticipatory questions, connections, recall questions, and teachable terms.

Note: This material is excerpted from Reaching Olympus: The Saga of the Trojan War by Zachary Hamby.
