This 23-page resource is a set of short writing tasks, and formal essay questions in the style of AP and IB examinations. The initial tasks focus student attention on significant aspects of the text, and build up a full understanding of what Sophocles is trying to achieve, how he is trying to achieve it, and how successful he has been. The text-based questions can, additionally, be used as a basis for class discussion, and the essay topics as an invaluable tool for pre-examination revision and rehearsal. At a time-saving level, teachers will be relieved of the need to develop their own units of study for the play, and to seek out relevant questions from past examinations. “These prompts are a terrific tool for generating class discussions, creating short answer exams, or longer essay assignments. I have purchased a number of them and am impressed with each one” (from the LitWorks.com Commendations page).
