We began today with a quick discussion of Books 11 and 12 of The Odyssey. Then students watched this short film:
and answered these questions (The Science Behind the Myth of Homer’s Odyssey).
With the remaining 20 – 25 minutes, I gave students a chance to get a head start on tonight’s reading guide (Books 15, 16, and 17 Reading Guide). Most of you said that you were able to finish half of that in class.
And as a reminder, this week’s extra credit film on Friday afternoon will be the second half of The Odyssey.
