My LEAST favorite unit to teach in English II is Greek Drama (to include Antigone and Oedipus Rex)...That being said, I take a day or two to offer some background information and to have my students work on a small working Vocabulary of Greek Drama Terms for analysis of the plays. Use the following as a "Crash Course" in Greek Drama to prepare for further reading:
Ancient Greek Drama PPT Presentation
Goes Around Comes Around Vocabulary Chart
Tragic Comical CHARACTER
Greek Drama Terms POP Quiz
The whole lot should take about three (3) hours of class time and will be a great bridge to Greek Tragedy reading.
