Tragic Flaw and The Merchant of Vencie

Today we talked about the term "tragic flaw". First, we brainstormed about what the words "tragic" and "flaw" mean by themselves.

After that we thought about what it would mean if a person had a tragic flaw. We came up with one definition.

As a class we decided that Shylock, Antonio and Bassanio may have tragic flaws. This is something to look for as we continue reading.

We read to page 183 and completed an exit ticket before the end of class. We are now in court to see how much Shylock will stick to the contract!
