Scholars will preview Oedipus Rex by making a storyboard of the events. They will place the events of the play in the order in which they happen and then do an illustrative storyboard.
Welcome to Tuesday, y’all! Today we’re going to do a little bit of previewing of Oedipus. I’m going to give each table a set of slips of paper filled with the events of the play Oedipus Rex. They are all mixed up – your job as a group is to put the slips in order. When you finish, I would like for you to use a sheet of paper to illustrate a storyboard for the play. Stick figures are fine 🙂
After we finish that, I want to go over some vocab for this unit! We’re going to be studying figurative language along with the play we’re reading. So, I’ve got ANOTHER SCHWIFTY POWERPOINT to show you! Because apparently this is PowerPoint Appreciation Week. Yeesh.
Anyway, take some notes because you can bet your bottom dollar this stuff will be on your test!
