This document contains worksheets for every scene of Sophocles's Antigone. The questions vary in depth and complexity. Many ask for line numbers, requiring students to cite relevant evidence from the play in their answers. Some refer to specific line numbers in order to find the answer. The questions require a close reading of the text and will help with remembering the actions of each scene, motivations of actions, character details, and themes of the play.
I typically give my students these questions before they read each scene so they can answer while they read. It also helps them understand the important aspects of each scene. Because they have to use textual evidence, it also requires that they correctly incorporate the quotes in their writing.
These questions can easily be aligned with several standards from various curriculum including Common Core, though not exclusively made for Common Core.
I use these questions with my English II Honors classes.
