The Odyssey by Homer: Questions for the Thinker Study Guide eBook by Fran Rutherford What is the meaning of hospitality?  Can man stand a chance against the forces of nature?   Is it possible to be compassionate and brutal at the same time?  Ponder these questions and many other questions as you use this Study Guide to accompany Odysseus on his fantastic trip home from Troy. This Question for the Thinker Odyssey Study Guide uses the Socratic method of a question and answer format to guide the high school student through this classical work.  Truly this is an answer to a prayer. Ordinarily I eschew study guides for they tend to limit discussion and understanding by providing ready answers! However, this series is very DIFFERENT simply because of the wonderful idea of just listing questions. The questions too are different in that they are thought provoking and lead the student to a deeper understanding of these difficult readings covered in these guides. The readings are ones they will encounter for the first time in high school, if they use a classical curriculum and then later explore at an even deeper level at college, so that this ultimately provides the student with their very own wonderful resource to take with them to college. The written answers also provide the necessary material needed to develop essays and papers on the books as well as guiding a student in the process of HOW to ask questions as they read, an important aspect of true understanding! Vocabulary development, research topics and frequent Questions for Further Thought are some of the hallmarks of Fran Rutherford's Questions for the Thinker Series, and are included throughout.  The Study Guide is divided into two sections.  The first half provides all the questions, the second half the complete answer key for mom.  (High School 9-12)
