We are studying The Odyssey. I did not allot myself my usual 2-3 weeks to do and must complete it in 1 week. Hmmmm. What do I do?
Resources that I will use to help us:
- A Scavenger Hunt that requires them to find: introductory information about: Homer, epics, traditions of the time, characters, Gods/Goddesses, Iliad, etc.
- I will use HootCourse to tweet out Spark Note links to be reviewed and blog posts to be read.
They will then record answers to basic comprehension questions based on the movie
ClassTool games to help them review
We will read about the Sirens because it is not included in the movie. Many of them have already seen it and are therefore familiar with the story (yes, it drives them crazy to know that on their off time they watched a video that I show in class and look at from the educational angles.)
Wish me luck. Onward to Ithaca
