This includes the "Epic Hero Cycle" handout where the students track how Odysseus fits the Epic Hero Cycle.
The next two pages are all of the gods/goddesses/mythical beings present in books 9-12 and 22-24 of the Odyssey (that's all our text book has). It includes the following:
The Judgement of Paris, The Trojan War, Mt. Olympus, Muses, Poseidon, Polyphemus, Circe, Aeolus, The Underworld, Tiresias, Calypso, Helios, Aeolus, Hermes, Zeus, Scylla, Charybdis, Sirens, Athena, Fatal Flaw/Hubris.
These two sheets combined help the students write their final paper which is proving how Odysseus fits the epic hero cycle. These are the only two worksheets I make them keep up with as we read.
If you have any questions, let me know!
