PRODUCT DESCRIPTION

Oedipus Fishbowl Debate → Here is a fun, scaffolded assessment activity for Sophocles' ancient Greek play Oedipus Rex! This Fishbowl Debate requires small groups to complete a graphic organizer form arguments and counterarguments with evidence from the play. Next, students participate in an engaging (and somewhat competitive!) discussion in which they argue their selected or assigned positions.

Following the discussion, you could require students to use their graphic organizers and notes to write an ACT-style argumentative essay. (This activity will add an extra 45 minutes to the lesson plan--you can also use it as a test the next day.)

This activity is also a part of my Oedipus FUN Bundle. Check out this teaching unit for a savings of over 30%!
