individual writing conferences
After meeting with me, conferees email a “conference summary” that uses complete sentences to explain the three talking points on the colored note sheet.
Everyone, this week and next, keeps the colored note sheet–to submit during the exam on Wednesday, December 19.
When not in conference, start reading Sophocles’s play, Antigone, about Oedipus’s daughter. As you read, consider these questions, marking your text for lines that help you consider them: How wise is Antigone? Like father like daughter?
Before you begin reading the play, ask yourself these personal questions: Have I ever knowingly broken a law? Can I imagine a situation that would prompt me to do so?
