Use Homer’s The Odyssey to engage students and improve their discussion skills! Everything you need for a student-led fishbowl-style Socratic seminar is included. Instructions, lesson plan flow, and student evaluation forms equal easy teacher implementation! Students read a summary and then discuss the motivation and implications surrounding Odysseus’s refusal of Kalypso’s offer of immortality. After seven years on her island and two sons, his decision to return to Ithaca is significant and students love this discussion!
WAIT!!! This is included in my 2-Week Socratic Seminar Discussion Skills Unit used to teach discussion skills to secondary students!
