Antigone is a vibrant play that students enjoy. I liked it better than Oedipus, which I read in high school. Honestly, if you have to choose, tell the story of Oedipus and then read Antigone. It's about so much more than pride and trying to outwit fate. Antigone is a tale of a young woman fighting the laws of man in order to follow her own moral laws.
She's young and a woman. How many ancient plays will have someone like her as a main character? She can be sassy and emotional, but she's also strong and independent. Pretty much every girl in your classroom will relate. Boys, too.
Anyhow, besides a plug for the play by Sophocles, this pack also includes a 25-question multiple choice test on the play (with Quizstar import codes to use it online), brief descriptions of Aristotle's view of tragedy, a view of human flaws (not tragic but genetic) that was an interesting pre-tragedy discussion, a reading schedule for groups, an image activity that has students answering 6 questions about each image, a table comparing Creon to Antigone as the tragic hero, and the ultimate crooked family tree (worth the price just to make a poster of this one for your classroom-preview file is way compressed).
Also added is a second 59-question test written by my wife, which makes two original tests to go with all the other goodies.
