Product Description
We would all love to teach Homer's Odyssey in its entirety, but this is not always a reasonable option. This assignment concentrates on highlights from many of Odysseus's most famous journeys and trials. The events are abridged, but excerpts from the original text are included. Additionally, this assignment is used to teach the concept of allusion, with many poetic allusions woven into the telling of the story. Students will read 13 scenes from The Odyssey, including other literary material. The storyboard assignment is included as an option for studying the reading in this format; a simple rubric is included. I also suggest using scenes from the film version of The Odyssey. These two assignments together were such a hit that many of my students chose to read The Odyssey for an independent reading - so even though we only spent 2-3 class hours on the assignments,students chose to spend many more independently.
