Right above us - see this 

Right where it says "discussion forum" - just click on "add a discussion"! Make sense?

Ryan, not sure where forum is

Hi Carol - consider posting your question up above us (in the world lit discussion forum) as a crowdsource question.  I will be broadcasting CS ?s this week so if you post it above I can share it with the whole membership  - there are LOTS of great Odyssey tools out there!

If you go to World Book, then World Book Advanced..then to e books may say etext) there is an easy to read version.  Students can highlight and a computer voice will read to them...they can also download to mp3/smartphone

I am teaching the Odyssey using the McDougal Littell textbook version. Anybody have some creative ideas to make this more fun? Where can I find audio version of this particular version or even some related movie?

FC - really, no big deal at all about sharing the love.  You just don't want the note  to read like the phrase "for only 19.99" should come after your lines :) lol

Do you teach literary terms, figurative language or rhetorical devices? Each Wednesday, we will bring you one literary term with fun examples from hip-hop, literature and history. Share examples your students create and we'll add them to the blog 

Today, we begin with alliteration. Next week, we'll bring you greatest hyperbole examples ever.

Ryan, I am looking for a teacher teaching world literature. I think if the class starts with what we know about the earliest art as they go through the course they will build and connect information. Art education trains the mind's eye to see. Combined with literature and history students will get more out of critical thinking. When I learned art history i was only taught western art history. This left an amazing amount of information out. As I create art around the world, I have to do a lot of research. Prior to the work on the micro lesson Istanbul I never new where Anatolia was.

It is my hope that students will learn about other cultures and what causes them to be different than their culture.

If you can, go to and do two things, review one of the micro lessons from either the prehistoric era or Early villages and then click on Meet Katherine My bio is there and some of my art work if you scroll down.

Enough said for now. After you read this do the work I asked Ryan to do and contact me
