Today we take our best, most intriguing ideas for staging "To Be or Not to Be" into the next round of Experiment phase: storyboarding. You will create at least 4 storyboard panels for the sequence you stage, accompanied by annotations to explain the visuals.

(I intended to dictate these terms to you folks and then realized this is a great opportunity to talk about what really matters in terms of analysis, synthesis, creativity and showcasing knowledge.)
Then we will On-Demand: Discuss Shakespeare's use of a literary device such as allusion, symbolism and characterization to develop a theme of power and control. 15 min. One powerful paragraph.
Also, we will share two of our indie book projects.
