Grade 9 ELA Module 2, Unit 2, Lesson 15

The terrible truth begins to come out in a lesson that focuses on the final act of Sophocles' Oedipus the King. As ninth graders collect evidence that details the origin of Oedipus, and how his birth relates to the prophecy everyone tried to avoid, they reflect on the ways that these new details contribute to the play's central theme.
