Period 3 and 4 are not in the same place in the book, so some of these chapters are estimates. Students should continue taking notes on plot events and the themes of hubris and "The needs of the many"

Monday- The Death of Patroclus. (Does Achilles demonstrate hubris when he tells Patroclus to fight in his place?)
Tuesday- The Death of Hector and the Ransom for his body (How does Achilles re-establish his character after Hector's death?)
Wednesday - The Queen of the Amazons fights against Achilles
Thursday - The Death of Achilles (Was Achilles death heroic even though it was pre-destined?) DUE: notes; QUIZ - over the first half of the book (through the death of Achilles)
Friday - Odysseus recruits Achilles' son to join the fight (Does Odysseus behave heroically when he tries to obtain the bow of Heracles?) DUE: notes; QUIZ - over the first half of the book (through the death of Achilles)
