Today we read scene 2 of Antigone, afterwards I assigned a writing assignment. The writing assignment is that you pretend you are a reporter in Thebes while the events of the play are going on, and you then write a 4 paragraph news story about what has happened in the prologue and scenes one and two. Make sure to cover the who, what, when, where, why, and how of the story. A reminder that journalism paragraphs are supposed to be short, (3-5 sentences.) Feel free to make up quotes, in contemporary language, from any of the characters in the play. Tomorrow you will be taking the PLAN test, so this assignment will be due Thursday at the beginning of class. The quiz over scene two will also be Thursday. There are only four vocab words from this scene (including reverence and arrogance, which aren’t highlighted in the book,) and plot questions.
