The following is my collection of materials for teaching Sophocles' play Antigone to a 10th grade English class. I teach from McDougal-Littel's text The Language of Literature, so some items are indicative of this.

This collection includes activities, study guides, projects, quizzes, tests, and answer keys.

Gender Bias Activity

by Sarah Lorntson
A few weeks before teaching Antigone, I hand out this survey to the staff at my school. From the information I receive back, I create a matching quiz that asks students to match the staff member to a job he/she previously held. I try to put careers on the quiz that are typically associated with one gender. This gives the students a chance to look at gender bias, a key issue in Antigone. We discuss why they assumed things about different staff and careers.

Another small group activity-- this one requires students to create a newspaper for the city of Thebes. I have the kids use large sheets of paper so that the newspapers can be hung in the hallways for all to read.
