This Grade 9 ELA Module 2, Unit 2, Lesson 5 lesson plan also includes:
Oedipus may be the king, but he certainly does not rule—or see—all. Analyze his interaction with Teiresias in a instructional activity focused on the central idea of Sophocles' Oedipus the King.

Additionally, they note their responses in a Quick Write prompt about what Oedipus can and cannot see.
