PRODUCT DESCRIPTION

**Although I have included questions for Oedipus, materials can easily be adapted to fit any text. I have also used this activity with The Catcher in the Rye, Pride and Prejudice, and Hamlet.**

Students need a safe and structured environment for sharing their opinions and engaging in discussion about a text. This fishbowl activity allows students to explore opposing opinions surrounding a complex text, practice citing textual evidence, and begin formulating a thesis statement for a future writing assignment. This discussion technique will engage even your most timid students.

Attached you will find a PowerPoint presentation that outlines elements, guidelines, and expectations for all students participating in the fishbowl discussion AND includes 7 thought-provoking questions for Oedipus. I have found that the key to a successful fishbowl is that students are fully prepared to engage in the conversation and support one another. This ppt. makes it easy for students to grasp the concepts and expectations before they begin the activity and reflect on the experience afterwards--and it makes classroom management a breeze for you!
