The Gorgons Head Lesson Plan and Guided Reading Script and Quiz
The Gorgons Head Lesson Plan and Guided Reading Script and 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, Odysseus and the Cyclops, Pandora’s Box and The Tale of Two Spinners) is available as one product – The Ancient Greek Myths Guided Reading Scripts – for £14.99

Polydectus: Women! Nothing but trouble!
Perseus: I’d be careful what you say, if I were you! I think we’re a bit out-
numbered here today!
Medusa: Correct! I, Medusa, am here today representing my two immortal Gorgon sisters, Stheno and Euryate. Shame I wasn’t!
Athene: Well, don’t go expecting any sympathy from me! Messing around in my temple, with that Poseidon! You deserved what you got!
Beauty is only for those who deserve it! You certainly didn’t!
Medusa: And you made sure no one would look twice in our direction!
Danae: What! With all those snakes for hair! I’d say not!
Athene: Plus that other one small detail – that once someone did look in their direction, they didn’t make the same mistake again! They couldn’t!
