I post here daily about what we accomplished in class each day, including handouts and links available to students on my CANVAS site.
Day 21, Sem. 1
Interim Day (Halfway through the first quarter!)
Today, we finally delved into the story of Oedipus Rex, after several days of introductory work and preparation. First, we read the Prologue together as a class, practicing close reading/annotation on the Prologue as a model for how to read the individually assigned scenes. Then, each group learned its scene assignment and began to work on Day 1 assignments (reading entire scene for basic overview, writing a summary, identifying words to define). Tomorrow, we will complete Day 1 assignments and move on to Day 2.
Homework: Finish paraphrasing Aristotle's 6 characteristics of a tragic hero. Study vocabulary, and begin to work on the revision of your Gilgamesh ACES.
