Agenda for the Week of 9/19

Hamlet - Act 2

Reminders

  • This is a SIP week, so you will be in class Monday/Tuesday/Wednesday
  • Check your school email EVERY DAY
  • All assignments are due on Sunday by 7:00 PM, except the initial discussion board post on Wednesday by midnight
  • If your work isn't completed by 7:00 PM on Sunday, you are required to come in every day until it is done - graded or not
  • Some assignments in this unit are for your benefit, but not for a grade. If you are concerned about doing well on the AP test, you are going to want to complete all work.
  • There are many, MANY film versions of Hamlet. None of them cover the entire work, but they are mostly wonderfully done. I encourage you to watch them at some point during this 5-week unit.

Skills Covered

  • Reading and analyzing a drama
  • Analyzing elements of a tragedy
  • Analyzing Shakespearean language
  • Writing one-page responses
  • AP-style multiple choice
