Odysseus and the Cyclops Guided Reading, lesson plan & quiz

Each 'package' consists of lesson plan plus guided reading script (6 speakers) plus quiz/reading comprehension.  

These resources accommodate both small group and all class engagement. As explained in the lesson plan, whilst a group of six speakers read the script, the rest of the class (divided into teams?) has to follow in order to answer questions that follow. There are also some ideas for follow up discussion, time permitting.

Time allowance is flexible - from 20 to 30 minutes, depending on how much of the package is used.

This script, along with four others (Theseus and the Minotaur, The Gorgon's Head, Pandora's Box and The Tale of Two Spinners) is available as one product - The Ancient Greek Myths Guided Reading Scripts -  for £14.99

                                   Sample text:

Greek warrior 2

(laughing):                   Yes, we’ve heard how being a blacksmith was just a little bit too taxing for you! Did being born with only one eye mean you were only born with half a brain?

Cyclops 2:                   How rude! Though I guess it was a shame we forgot our old blacksmith skills.

Polyphemus:                Even though I would never have driven a red-hot stake into the eye of any creature.

Greek warrior 1:          Not even one that was holding you captive, and eating 2 men for breakfast and supper, every day?

Odysseus:                    Real convenience food, we were!

Polyphemus:                Well, you did make a welcome change from lamb stew!

Poseidon:                    Enough! Here I am, trying to defend you, Polyphemus, and all you can do is confirm their story! What are you? Stupid, or something?

Sample Quiz/Reading Comprehension Questions

  • What animals did Cyclops look after?
  • What trade had Zeus originally trained the Cyclops for?
  • How did Polyphemus prevent Odysseus and his men from escaping from his cave?
  • Why did the Cyclops not help Polyphemus?
  • What did Odysseus use to dull Polyphemus’s senses ..even more?
