I post here daily about what we accomplished in class each day, including handouts and links available to students on my CANVAS site.
Day 26, Sem. 1
Working on our latest vocabulary list, we went over words 1-5 and then moved directly into Oedipus Live scene presentations. Groups/Scenes 1-4 presented today. While listening to the scenes, students in the audience were "tracking" evidence for several concepts in these scenes: Oedipus is a well-respected leader, Oedipus has character flaws, dramatic irony occurs frequently in the play, Sophocles develops a motif of a ship, Sophocles develops a motif of light/darkness and sight/blindness. Tracking involves noting the speaker and a snippet of the line. After the presentations (homework if necessary) involves finding line numbers for that evidence and filling out a more complete phrase/line for the actual evidence.
