(You will be allowed to use your notebook on the day of the test!! Remember
to have a section in the back called APPENDIX, where you can put all of the handouts you complete in class. If they're
attached to the notebook, you may use them!)
will be due on the day of The Odyssey test. Your notebook must contain
(10 points) An original cover with a title, an illustration,
and your name.
(10 points) Table of Contents.
Once your notebook is complete and organized with numbered pages, you will create a table of contents. This will be the first page in your notebook (after the cover, of course, which is not numbered).
(5 points) Characters Page.
This page will have three columns where you identify the characters (Human - God/Goddess - Supernatural/Monster).
(50 points) A diary section with five entries and five illustrations
for each of the following adventures:
of the Cyclopes (160)
the Enchantress (176)
and Charybdis (191)
is Odysseus’ diary of his adventures. Each of the five entries should begin
“Dear Diary.” Then describe the adventure from Odysseus’ point of view. (He would use the pronoun
“I” when he is writing.) You should briefly summarize the adventure,
and then go beyond just summarizing the text. Be creative. Tell us what you (Odysseus) are really feeling, thinking, and dreaming.
Each entry should be one page, including the picture. (I suggest using
½ page for each. You may type entry and add a picture from the Internet, if you
like. It must fit on one page.)
(10 points) Character Sketch.
This page will be your graphic organizer for a character sketch of Odysseus.
(Graphic organizer will be provided.)
6. (10 points) Reflections page. Metaphorically, human life is an odyssey. The lure of the lotus, the seduction of the Siren’s song, and the brutish world of the Cyclopes all represent tests and ordeals people confront almost daily. Discuss similarities
between the journey of Odysseus and events that have
occurred in your own life. Think about the difficult choices Odysseus was required
to make during his journey.
7. (5 points)
THIS Score page should be your last page. It is numbered and included
in your Table of Contents.
