I am so happy with my decision to purchase this resource guide for teaching The Odyssey! Everything is ready to go...I just have to make copies. Yay! It is filled with more than enough to keep students engaged and working with the text from start to finish. I teach 9th grade English, but their skill level is pretty low. This guide includes differentiated activities, so you are able to pick and choose what works best for each student or group. Basically, if you are readingThe Odyssey, you probably have older kids. However, it doesn't matter their skill level because there's something here for all of them. It includes everything you need from pre to post reading: assignments, activities, vocab, assessments...all there! Also, just an fyi...I purchased the print version of this book, and I was happy to see it is full size. I thought it was going to be a mini/half size book that made things more difficult to see when I made copies. It's not! :-) It's a regular workbook sized book with good sized print that all kids will be able to clearly read. I hope this review helped. I definitely recommend this guide. TCM, thank you for this helpful resouce at great price! :-)
