Odysseus’ Return Home – DANGER

Learning Target: The aspects of human nature are reflected at the return home. 

Essential Questions (20 points):

  1. Odysseus is disguised as a beggar – why? 
  2. Athena is the goddess who appears to guide Odysseus home.  Why Athena, the goddess of wisdom – why not a ‘warrior’ god? 

Notes for part 2

  • Eumaeus – a loyal servant.  Explore the idea of being a servant or a slave, yet remaining loyal to your ‘master’.  See the video link: ‘Daenerys Targaryen Gets an Army of Free Men’.  Watch toward the end as DT frees the slaves, yet they remain loyal to her.  Explore why this happens and why it was a solid strategy.  http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=NXUtEpvh-DI
