Hey guys, the Antigone Connections Essay rough draft is due TUESDAY, OCTOBER 24. This weekend, please be sure to complete your planner! I also recommend using the checklist on the assignment sheet to help you develop a full introduction paragraph (ending in your thesis!), and coming up with analysis with which to end each body paragraph.
On Monday we will have writer's workshop in class to discuss conclusions and put all the pieces together for your rough draft!
Remember, you should be following the news and brainstorming this week to identify at least 4 possible connections between the text of Antigone and modern-day events and figures.
The following sheet needs to be filled out by Thursday 10/19 for F block and Friday 10/20 for A block.
This weekend, please read the conversation between Antigone and Ismene, from page 193 - top of page 198. As you read, annotate for *CHARACTERIZATION.
*What do the two women say, do, and feel that REVEALS what kind of person they each are?
Don't forget that you ALSO have a 15-20 minute quiz at the beginning of class on Tuesday 10/10. Be sure to review your notes on Hobbes and Locke, legal positivism, and natural law, and review the texts of Merchant of Venice 4.1 and MLK's "Letter from Birmingham Jail."
