Transcript of Using Graphic Novels

Engaging Intruction with Graphic Novels
Odysseus as an Archetype for his Heroic Successors
The Odyssey provides an understanding of what we want our heroes to look like. The Epic Hero of the Odyssey, Odysseus, reflects the values of his culture. Odysseus and other ancient heroes provide the schemata for the creation and analysis of heroism, ethics, and how writers infuse basic humanism into their stories.
Bringing students to the text...
By comparing Odysseus to a contemporary hero, students gain the insight into the conceptual background for developing characters and stories.
