The first page is a blank "Epic Hero Cycle" handout where the students track how Odysseus fits the Epic Hero Cycle.
THESE ARE BASIC WORKSHEETS. Please look closely at the thumbnails to make sure they are what you are looking for, and let me know if you have questions.
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!
