After some reflection I have altered the RQA question slightly.  If you have already begun working the updated prompt should still fit with the first one.

"Write an analysis of the techniques an author uses in a literary work to contribute to the discourse on a topic of importance to society."

The mandatory elements remain the same
-no more than 3 pages
-outside sources must be used (not the texts)
-works cited
-submission to by 5:30 pm on January 17th

Cool Shakespeare Doc

Hey everyone!  I ran into this pretty amazing little doc on what it is like to play Hamlet and why the character has endured for so long. 

If you are sitting around with nothing to do, I highly recommend it!


Have a wonderful and restful break, continue to work on your projects

Let me know if you have any questions

Act I scenes i-iv

As you work through the discussion questions I implore you to avoid using SPARKNOTES to supplement the classroom lessons.  Rather, I will include video versions of the readings after every class for you to reference and would encourage you to email me or come in to see me with any questions you may have.

The discussion questions should be completed individually and you should expect to turn them in at the start of the following class.

Keep working on your projects and enjoy's AMAZING!
