The hard copy must be in correct MLA format. What's that? You've forgotten what that looks like? Go to the OWL site (see Engl. Dept. home page for the link) and it will have all the formatting info you need for both the essay and all citations.
The RUBRIC for the research paper is also on the Engl. Dept. home page.
Print single-sided pages
The FD must contain:
BIND the essay securely with staples, brads, report cover (no slide down bindings), or three-ring binder.
DO NOT put pages in page protectors (makes it difficult to mark up the essay)
Monday: Begin reading Act II. Turn in your "Has Hamlet Gone Crazy" short write.
Tuesday: Read "Defending Claudius" on the unit page. Discuss Claudius' actions and the possible motives, both good and bad, for the things he does.
ALSO discuss why Hamlet is so determined to see Claudius' actions only as being motived by the "bad" and will not give his favorite uncle, who was like a father to him, the benefit of the doubt. Does this say more about Hamlet than it does about Claudius? WHAT does it say about Hamlet?
Thursday: Lecturette on SP paper requirements and organization/format
- Remainder of period on peer editing of RD
- Due to Classroom problems w/outline return:
Friday: Review events of Act II so far and continue reading/discussing the play.
AND we will do peer editing. "FD" due Friday, but I'll grade what revision is there on Monday.
READ: pp1787-1792: Hamlet's Melancholy, Hamlet & Ophelia, and Producing Hamlet.
Add to your notes on the nature of Hamlet's relationship with Ophelia, based on what we know of their interactions thus far.
We will also watch several scenes from different versions of he play.
After reading and discussing Act I of Hamlet you will examine the stress Hamlet is experiencing and evaluating to what extent it is affecting him. HAS he gone "crazy" by the end of Act I or is his plan to "act crazy" only a ruse?
From the previous articles on the impact of stress on people, take the quiz as though you were Hamlet. Note the score and state your opinion (as informed by the articles) as to Hamlet's like state of mind at the end of Act I.
Block Day: Intro to Shakespeare's sonnets. Working with sonnets. Write your own sonnet. (due Friday)
Friday:Read Act I. Our assigned groups will read out loud (I will stop to discuss) BUT each student must still read the entire play, as assigned, so we can discuss the story as it's read aloud rather than worry about mere plot (which you can get on your own).
Rough drafts of SP essay can be submitted to TII. They will be "on time" until 8 AM Monday. After that, you still need to submit for peer review, but you will not earn the points for this step of the SP process.
