Pandora Box Guided Reading Script, Lesson Plan and Quiz
Pandora Box resources accommodate both small group and all class engagement. As explained in the lesson plan, whilst a group of six speakers read the script, the rest of the class (divided into teams?) has to follow in order to answer questions that follow. There are also some ideas for follow up discussion, time permitting.
Time allowance is flexible – from 20 to 30 minutes, depending on how much of the package is used.
This script along with four others (Theseus and the Minotaur, The Gorgon’s Head, Odysseus and the Cyclops and The Tale of Two Spinners) is available as one product – The Ancient Greek Myths Guided Reading Scripts – for £14.99
Each ‘package’ consists of lesson plan plus guided reading script (6 speakers) plus quiz/reading comprehension.
Pandora Box Sample Text:
Epimetheus: And who is responsible for me feeling miserable and irritable today?
Hope: This lot are all guilty, in their own different ways!
Pandora: Who? Me?
Epimetheus: I’ll say! I just knew you were too good to be true!
Zeus: How ungrateful! Typical mortal! I gave him the perfect woman and just listen to his gratitude!
Epimetheus: What? Grateful for not only ruining my life but everybody else’s too?
Vice: Well, I sure was grateful. If it hadn’t been for her disobedient ways, I’d still be in that box now!
Epimetheus: And I wouldn’t be feeling so down in the dumps! I knew she was trouble from the moment I set eyes on her!
Hope: Easy enough to say with hindsight! You couldn’t believe your luck at the time!
Epimetheus: Well, it’s not every day a man is presented with a wife to out-shine all others!
