HW Reminders: •Read all of Act V for Tuesday 11/8 and Wednesday 11/9.
•Your independent work and MWRG for this will be due the day you come back from Thanksgiving break.
•We will try our first Q2 essay on Friday 11/4 or Monday 11/7—45 minutes. Worth 40 points.
Agenda: Quick write/practice for next class: •Write for ten minutes. Come up with a working thesis statement and what could be your first body paragraph of an essay. Here is your broad prompt: What is a central message of this soliloquy? How does Shakespeare convey that message?
Small group goals while I conduct one on one conferences: •First: Share your thesis statements and body paragraphs with each other. What literary device/technique did you discuss? What “So, what?”/theme did you discuss?
•Second: Respond to discussion questions 4-20 with your group. Be jotting down notes as your discuss.
•Third: So far we have talked predominantly about the motif of revenge. Consult your Hamlet packet and decide, for each scene you discussed, what the central motifs of that scene are. Add all of the motifs you discuss to the back whiteboard and attach a quick description.
