Greek Tragedy Writing - 1st Day

Warmup: in notebooks, students listed as many familiar stories as they could remember and circled the ones they thought might make good tragedies.

Brainstorm: on the board, we listed the stories and talked about who the tragic hero would be in several of them. We erased the ones that wouldn't work at all.

Each section was divided into groups of 5 to 6 students. Groups chose from the stories on the board and got started filling out the Tragedy Worksheets.

Tomorrow: complete Tragedy Worksheets, review structure of Greek tragedy, fill out character sheets for each person
