Create a "Chain of Events" powerpoint that takes us on an
historical journey covering the basics of "Oedipus," the "Oracles,"
the "Riddle of the Sphynx," and the events of "Antigone." It should
be chronological and be set up as"one thing leading to another."
This powerpoint should be at least 20 slides and include pictures,
maps, descriptions, and links. Be sure to reference your sources
and DO NOT copy and paste any information.
The "Open Mind" Poster. Pick five of the characters from the story
( you can include those from Oedipus) and make an "Open Mind"
for each one. Be sure to demonstrate, portray, the characters
thoughts, beliefs, personality traits, and fate in your "Open Mind."
After they have been made, place them on a poster arranged in a
way that makes sense and you can explain. Decorate the poster
around the "Minds" as needed.
Create a "diary" for one of the characters in the story. The diary
should have eight entries total and should reflect the feelings and
experiences of the character in question. Each entry should be at
least 3/4 of a page typed, double spaced FSTNR12. It does not
have to be illustrated but it should have dates and be put in, or
written in, a nice diary or created diary.
Create three "TV Ads" or commercials advertising the story of
Antigone, and event in Antigone, a place Antigone was based in, a
theme, symbol etc. Each commercial should be video taped,
cleaned up and edited, and put on dvd. Be creative ! Example:
Make an ad for a Protective Material that would save you from the
Sphynx, whether you knew the answer to the riddle or not. Each ad
should be at least 1 1/2 minutes in length.
