Product Description
This Antigone unit was created for my AP English Literature course. It is the third play in the Oedipus Cycle by Sophocles, (Translation by Dudley Fitts and Robert Fitzgerald ISBN-13: 978-0-15-602764-9) read by my students after they had read Oedipus Rex and Oedipus at Colonus. The shortest play in the cycle, Antigone raises issues of human justice, non-conformity, and morality that still resonate with modern readers. This unit contains study questions for the play and several impromptu writing prompt. The assessments are a quiz and a unit test with thirty multiple choice questions and several different selections of impromptu essay. Keys are included. In order to focus on textual analysis, I ask students to practice a strict essay structure so I have included a handout on essay structure and expectations and an essay template to clarify the structure. Also, I ask students to find and analyze literary criticisms, so I include a sample of the analysis handout I use with assigned literary criticism. To encourage focused formal discussion, I have an assignment I designate “Discussion Tasks,” which asks students to generate focused questions and comments that delve into the characters, themes, and literary techniques of the work, encouraging academic discussion.
