While we are at home, I am working on our Odyssey readings with my own kids. They are actually working through the Latin/Greek Roots and using your Odyssey yellow packets. My daughter will be in 9th next year and so we might as well get her prepared. Here are some of the things we are watching and discussing from home. Some of them you have already seen. Some of them I show my sophomores. And the Troy movie is based on the Iliad which I show infrequently. FYI- While I recommend it, the Troy movie is rated R. I have an edited family version if I show it in class, but if you choose to watch from home it does have nudity and violence. :) Still interested? Or working on essays or epics? Here are somethings to explore! Miss you!
