By Mary Neelan. Help modern readers gain insight into Sophocles’ fifth-century BCE tragedy. Twelve lessons focus on an introduction to Greek theater, an overview of the play, an analysis of its structure, an appreciation of the role of the Greek chorus, the elements of tragedy, the choices characters make, irony, imagery and figurative language, a comparison between the Sophocles play and Jean Anouilh's version performed in WWII’s occupied France, and a lesson titled “Themes and 21st-Century Applications.” Designed to promote critical thinking, the curriculum unit includes objectives, notes, detailed procedures, and ready-to-use student handouts that drive the activities and assessments. Grades 9–12. Answer key. Bibliography. Spiralbound. 8˝" x 11". Center for Learning. 75 pages. Second Edition. ©2016.
