A Few Additional Notes
The group activity has students working in small groups to discuss several important aspects of the play. Using the information they have acquired so far through individual work and class discussions, students get together to further examine the text and to brainstorm ideas relating to five specific aspects of the play.
Two lessons are devoted to creating a film version of Medea based on the knowledge students have gained, their personal feelings and experiences, and the needs of a modern audience.
There are three writing assignments in this unit, each with the purpose of informing, interpreting, or having students express personal opinions. The first assignment is to inform: students write a composition based upon their theme topics. The second assignment is interpretive: students recast
dialogues from Medea using modern methods of communication. The topic is given in the letter assignment. The third assignment is to give students a chance to simply express their own opinions: following the unit test, students write a composition explaining who, in their opinion, is the most sympathetic character in Medea.
In addition, there is a Greek history research assignment.
These materials are geared for whole class use but are very easily adapted 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.
