The Odyssey - Teaching Unit
For the new teacher, Prestwick House's extensive line of title-specific Teaching Units may serve as a starting point. For the experienced teacher, the Unit may serve as a point of departure. Our aim is to save you time and energy while alleviating the frustration associated with teaching a new book. Each Unit identifies scholarly objectives and poses questions designed to develop mastery of those objectives. Our multiple-choice and essay tests are constructed to determine understanding of those objectives. Every unit includes brief introductory materials, a vocabulary list, questions for essay and discussion, a chapter-by-chapter study guide, and a multiple-choice and essay test.
