What are you going to do with it?

Go to the Odyssey online. The links are on the next page called The Odyssey.
                      You will be divided into groups of three.
                      Read three books every two days for homework. You will be responsible for writing a journal entry about one of those books.
                         You will never know which one will be assigned to you, SO read them all.
                      While traveling through The Odyssey, you must write a log entry of every situation you face. Please note who the characters are,
                         what they are doing, where they came from, and their interactions along the journey.
                      You will be using Google Presentations to create your journal.  All the members of your group will share their presentations
                         with each other so you all work on the same presentation.
                      Every slide must represent one book and be put in the correct order.
                      You are required to have an image, an in-text citation with parenthetical documentation, and no more than 150 words describing your travels.
                      Please write in first person as though you are actually taking this journey with Odysseus.
