Background on The Odyssey
We’re going to start our Odyssey in Troy. Check out the Prezi below to learn about Homer’s first epic poem, The Iliad. This Prezi created by Amy Counts gives a quick summary of The Iliad and sets you up to continue your study with The Odyssey.
Review glog over The Odyssey Background. Fill out the Google Slides titled “The Odyssey Background” and take notes over what you have learned in the glog.
The Wanderings of Odysseus
Once you have completed that begin reading Part 1 of The Odyssey, but before reading Part 1 open and make a copy of the following Google Slides: “The Odyssey Vocabulary”, “The Odyssey Summary”, and “The Odyssey Flipbook”. Make it so that the title of your copy of the Google Slides assignment reflects your last name and the title of the assignment. For example, if your last name was Miles and the assignment you were working on was “The Odyssey Vocabulary” your title would look like this: Miles The Odyssey Vocabulary.
