I post here daily about what we accomplished in class each day, including handouts and links available to students on my CANVAS site.
Day 29, Sem. 1
After 10 minutes of independent reading time, students worked in their groups on the Literary Seismograph assignment (handout not on Canvas -- sorry!). For this project, each group member selected a line from its Oedipus scene that had a significant impact on the deeper meaning. They wrote out two inferences for those lines, and identified what literary technique Sophocles used to create that impact. The group then created a poster with all the lines charted on peaks as if for a seismograph (impact on the text, get it?). The final poster for this project is due on Thursday. Today's class was the day with the most class time to work on the poster. Students may come to Smart Lunch on Wednesday to work or may take the poster home to finish it between now and Thursday. They may have some limited time on our seminar days to work on the poster as well. We finished class with some vocabulary review using a crossword puzzle.
Homework: Finish crossword to review vocabulary (quiz on Thursday). Complete Tracking Evidence chart to use during the seminar on Tuesday/Wed.
