Product Description
Bring history to life by having students discuss and debate issues related to the Trojan War as understood through Homer's The Iliad and The Odyssey.

How do you defeat someone who is nearly invincible, like Superman (or Achilles)?

Or who would your students choose as most beautiful or most powerful between Hermione Granger (from Harry Potter), Ariana Grande (the singer), and Hilary Clinton (the politician)?
They have to make the same difficult decision to make as Prince Paris in Homer's the Iliad (Athena, Aphrodite, and Hera).

Let your students discuss and debate these hypothetical scenarios in small groups or with partners and watch the sparks fly!

After working together and discussing as a class, work retroactively to explain how each scenario relates to parts of the legends of the Trojan War.
