Movie Fan

One major issue with reading an old epic like the Odyssey is that it is so damn long–more than 400 pages, which is impossible: I can’t read that and neither can they. The Cliff Notes bore me, so we watch the movie, which is also pretty long (200 minutes), but better than reading it. Turns out we actually save about 100 hours simply by watching the movie of any given classic instead of reading it, which means that we have more time for games and rest. Studies show that teenagers need more rest and learn more from games so this is a better use of our time. When it comes to teaching English–do the Math!
