This engaging supplement-lesson teaches students to apply key elements of Aristotle’s Poetics to both Antigone and The Wizard of Oz. Then, using these models, students create a plot map for their own drama that includes both exterior and interior road blocks (obstacles) on what we call “the Yellow Brick Road” to each of their character’s goals.
