Grade 9 ELA Module 2, Unit 2, Lesson 7

Boy Graduating

In this lesson, students will explore the effects created by Sophocles’s decisions to reveal key details that shed light on the identity of Laius’s murderer through riddles. Students will continue to consider the development of theme, as they engage with how the musings of the Chorus and Creon refine their understanding of the central idea of the role of fate in the crime of Laius’s murder.
