Product Description
This collection of graphic organizers accompanies the Fitzgerald translation in the Holt McDougal 9th grade textbook. There is a graphic organizer for all Books in the Holt McDougal text: 1, 5, 9, 10, 11, 12, 16, 17, 21, 22, and 23.

Each graphic organizer has a focus for students so that they do not become overwhelmed. I have taken each Book and tailored the graphic organizer with the main skills students should be focusing on.

I prefer this set of graphic organizers to a study guide because it forces students to use higher level thinking skills and find things such as epic similes and archetypes. This set of graphic organizers also asks students to explain the significance of each. I usually do the Books 1 and 5 with my students to model, and have them work on Book 9 in small groups. After that practice, they are ready to complete each on their own, or in groups, as you see fit. I have seen much more growth in my students after using these graphic organizers, instead of study guides.

There are 5 total short answer questions that are aligned with STAAR on certain graphic organizers.

Here is a list of focuses for the total package. They are divided up by Book depending on the focus of that Book: Epic Simile, Epithet, Archetype, Hubris, Xenia (Greek Hospitality), Symbols, Characterization, Hero Characteristics, Figurative Langauge, Allusions, Irony, and Character Motivation.

Each Book also asks for the "Gist" of each Book, which is an AVID strategy for summarizing. However, I didn't leave space for 20 words like the AVID Book does. These summaries need to be longer than 20 words, so more space has been left for students to write.
