Okay, so yesterday was a TOTAL hodge podge, and probably felt super overwhelming. I’m so sorry.
Today we’ll be much more focused. We will have silent reading. Then I’m going to introduce a new literary pattern, tragedy.
So far this year, we’ve looked at two other patterns:
- Hero’s Journey – which I introduced with a lecture
- School Stories – which you invented based on three different texts (A SEPARATE PEACE by John Knowles, LOOKING FOR ALASKA by John Green, and HARRY POTTER AND THE ORDER OF THE PHOENIX, directed by David Yates).
Now we’ll explore tragedy. We’re only going to apply tragedy to ONE text (Antigone), but it’s such a useful pattern that I think it’s important for us to understand it. It will also help you in sharpening your ability to see what a pattern is coming up on Task 4 in January.
