Grade 9 ELA Module 2, Unit 2, Lesson 6


In this lesson students will make meaning of the figurative language of Teiresias’s riddle, as they continue to explore how the steady revelation of key details develops the central idea of the role of fate in Oedipus’s guilt. Students will engage in a collaborative discussion with their peers in response to a prompt that asks them to explore how the details of Teiresias’s riddle further shape the central idea of the text. Students will reflectively self-assess mastery of speaking and listening skills.
