Dossier In The Odyssey

Good Essays
Odyssey Project Each student is to keep a dossier, a file, of the Olympian gods Zeus and Athena in the Iliad. The total project is worth 150 points; the dossier on Zeus is worth fifty points, the dossier on Athena 100 points because it will be longer. Each student should note the characteristics, attributes, activities (speeches and actions), the epithets (various names), iconography, who the god normally associates with, and how the god is viewed by others (gods and humans) of each chosen god in the epic. The student should note the book, line number, and page number of the class edition (or approved edition). Internet editions may not be used—for obvious reasons. Once all the information is gathered, each student must write up the dossier in two or three pages …show more content…

    Lexi Hunter Mr. Baier The Odyssey When we first given the assignment after reading the Odyssey I wasn’t sure what I would do, but then the idea came to me. I thought of the idea to make a map of the journey it took Odysseus to get back home to Ithaca from Troy. The project would start at Troy and then there would be a long curvy river connecting Troy to Ithaca. Along the river there would be all the obstacles Odysseus faced in order to go back home to Ithaca. Courtney and I thought that…
