AGENDA 12/10

Finish acting out Hamlet V.ii

Share your intended monologues and dialogues for next week's final exam. Here's the lineup so you can see when you are scheduled to perform and if another group is doing the same (or a similar) scene. For those of you who haven't signed up yet, please do!

HW: Finish journal entries, foldables, and begin rehearsing for next week's final exam performances. Remember to think about the suggestion of a costume--even if you borrow my props, you'll need to add something to your character!

Wednesday, December 9, 2015


Discuss Ophelia's character and the changes in her relationship with Hamlet over the course of the play.

Read aloud scenes from III.i, III.ii, IV.v

HW: Finish the play if you haven't already--tomorrow is the exciting conclusion!

Journal entries:
5 journal entries (A1, A2, two options) from Hamlet following a unifying thread or motif
2 journal entries on independent reading book - one from first half of book, one from second half
1 from Oedipus Rex
(plus the three we've done already: Ready Player One, Bible as Literature, The School for Scandal)

Foldables for Candide, School for Scandal, Pygmalion, Oedipus Rex, and Hamlet

Note: Please plan to turn one of these assignments (the journal or the foldables) in on Friday and the other on Monday.
