March 6

IRT: ~20 minutes
WNB: Article of the Week - "Talking to Our Devices" (no link this week, sorry)

We watched a quick recap video of Oedipus Rex. Here's the Crash Course version of the play--lots of new insights!

We wrapped up our work with Oedipus Rex today with a gallery walk. Three posters focused on motifs from Oedipus Rex: sight vs. blindness, fate vs. free will, and search for truth. Students provided text evidence and commentary to support the topic.

Three other posters examined possible tragic flaws that may have led to Oedipus' demise: paranoia, arrogance, and ambition. Students shared examples from history, literature, politics, and sports and entertainment for each trait.

We had just a little bit of time at the end of class to go over some questions in the packet. These are due tomorrow!
