The Role of Sophocles
Dear Mythology Kids,
As you know, Sophocles was the greatest of Greek tragedians. He was recognized by the people of Athens as a "master," and Homer even referred to him as the "greatest man." Both accolades make sense because he was able to affect people with his choice of words.
In essence you have been asked to do the same for your nature myth performances. I realize that we may not weep, but more likely laugh when we see you present your myths, but the concept of taking a myth and developing it into a form of drama is a valuable experience for you. Remember that this was one of the ways that the ancient Greeks shared their myths with others.
TODAY IN CLASS:
1. We took a quiz covering "Antigone."
2. Upon completion of the quiz, "Nature Myth Part 3" was introduced to you. Each student is working in a group, and each group has selected a nature myth from a member of that group, to perform as their nature myth. I have listed the groups below, so that you are aware of the individuals you will be working with on Wednesday, the 22nd and Friday, the 24th. Remember that your performances will take place on Friday, the 24th!
