Infuse your lesson with excitement as your students create a topographical map of The Odyssey. Students cite textual evidence as they create a map to represent one island in this journey. As a team, they will discuss what the text says explicitly as well as inferences drawn from the text(RL 1). The journey is central to the theme of this text. These topographical maps let the students examine how they emerge over the course of the text (RL2). Each map will feature a complex character and how they interact with other characters (RL3). Each topographical map will contain two pieces of textual evidence from the corresponding section of the text. Students will be prepared to discuss the cumulative impact of the author’s word choices on meaning and tone (RL4). The topographical gallery walk will allow each student to examine the text through a different artistic medium. They will document what was emphasized or absent in each reproduction (RL7).
