The Odyssey Movie Guide | Questions | Worksheet (PG13 - 1997) challenges students to analyze the concepts and characters in Odysseus’ adventure. This is a great way to introduce students to Homer’s Greek epic or take a deeper look after studying the written version. Explore Odysseus’ relationship with the gods and the lessons he learns along the way about life, family, love and temptation.
Movie Version Notes:
This is the 1997 TV movie version starring Armand Assante. This movie is available in two different formats. The original version aired on TV in two 1.5hr segments and a single 3hr movie version. This movie guide has time stamps for the one part, 3hr version. However, if you have a different version there are also short descriptions of where to stop the movie for each question.
This resource consists of 19 high-level, short answer and essay questions that will do more than just ask your students to regurgitate information.

**CCSS Note: I’ve taken the liberty of aligning certain reading standards with the act of consuming content via the movie instead. Although students aren’t reading they are asked to perform the same cognitive functions on the content that they consumed from the movie.
