THE ODYSSEY - PRE-READING ACTIVITY in Google Classroom

THE ODYSSEY - PRE-READING ACTIVITY

Each group has a separate instruction page that you can access by clicking the title of the topic on the attached chart. You will be submitting a peer-review sheet where you can anonymously report any group member who is not pulling their weight. You will have Monday and Tuesday in-class to work on the assignment, any additional work that is incomplete will need to be finished on your own time. Select a group leader - that person will receive extra credit if everyone does their job. We will present on Wednesday, Thursday, and if needed, finish on Friday, but all assignments are DUE at the start of class on Wednesday. 


In addition to the lesson your group will teach, remember:
You EACH need to submit a copy of your presentation (slides) on Google Classroom.
Filowitz has a microphone available if you are soft-spoken, it's fun to use :)
EVERY GROUP MEMBER NEEDS TO HAVE A SPEAKING PART - ideally, AT LEAST one-slide per member.
Remember, MINIMAL text on your slides - make the presentation add to what you're saying, DO NOT just read text on a slide - if you're bored reading it, we're bored watching it. Engage us!
You will have a separate notes assignment where you will take notes on the other group presentations.
You will have a separate Google Form to submit as an Engagement assignment where you will give feedback on your peers to make sure everyone is contributing.
