In Class Test and Essay!

We have a few major assessments coming up so I offer a few suggestions....

For the in class test make sure to review:

1. ALL class notes from the in class reading
2. The discussion questions
3. The major speeches presented by all major characters
4. Significant plot points regarding the characters, their histories and their motivations

For the in class essay make sure to:

1. Prepare an outline and consider how you plan on attacking the question
2. Prepare ample evidence to support your claim (both internal and outside)

*I have linked a Google folder with 10 articles for your reference on this essay
 - 9 of them are from Harold Bloom's. Hamlet: Poem Unlimited. Riverhead Books.  2003
- the last is from John O' Connor and it is included because it is amazing

As Per Usual let me know if you have any questions.  Obviously you can include any source material that is relevant to your argument

I am going to start highlighting some of the Existentialism projects on the website as I complete the grading.  We will watch, listen and discuss them in more detail next week.  Overall I have been incredibly impressed with the quality of the projects I have seen and I hope you will all put the same effort into the Hamlet adaptation projects
