-what the character says
-what the character thinks
-what other characters say about the character
-dialogue

We are studying:
Theme, sequence of events (the epic poem The
Odyssey begins en media res), cause and effect

    and

characters, conflict, settings
What about the human experience is revealed through the various depiction of the journey motif? How do we learn about ourselves through experiences? How can
experiences teach us who we are as an individual?
