Product Description

The Odyssey is a great tool for teaching conflict. The text is so rich with its various characters and locales. There are many episodes and different types of conflict that Odysseus, his crew, his wife, and his son must struggle against. Students will find it pretty easy to locate many different examples of conflict as they read and review the text.

This packet consists of the following:

1. Activity One-Students will read a list of scenarios and identify the type of conflict each represents.

2. Activity Two-Students will read quotes from The Odyssey and identify the type of conflict each represents. Students will then explain how the quote demonstrates that type of conflict.

3. Activity Three-Students will work in small groups to identify additional examples of conflict in The Odyssey. Students will then share their findings with the class. (As the teacher, you can tell them how many you want them to find or leave it open-ended.)

4. Activity Four-In a well written paragraph or two, students will identify which conflict they think is most important in The Odyssey and why.

There is a PowerPoint presentation on conflict in my store that works well with these activities if your students need to review what conflict is and the different types of conflict. You can find the presentation here:
