A Few Additional Notes
There is a group writing project in this unit (as part of the three writing assignments). Student groups will choose a mythological story from a select list, and they will create a Greek Tragedy based on the myth following the format of Antigone. This will include composing odes and making masks.
There are three writing assignments in this unit, each with the purpose of informing, persuading, or expressing personal opinions. In the first assignment, students will research the life of Sophocles and write a composition based on their research. In Writing Assignment 2, students will be presented with a moral dilemma and will have to present both sides of the situation, take a stance, and then attempt to persuade the reader of the validity of their position. Finally, students will write their own Greek tragedies (following the format of Antigone) based on a Greek myth.
These materials are geared for whole class use but are very easily adaped for independent study work, lit circles or book groups, home school use, or tutoring. If you have never taught this book before, this manual will give you a great foundation of materials on a variety of levels. If you have taught this book before, you might like to know that many veteran teachers have told us they have found our LitPlan Teacher Pack manuals to be much more thorough and more helpful than other materials they have used.
