AP Lit: Hamlet & Power & Character

Right out the gate.  That's where we'll start on Monday and Tuesday.

Then we will carry out an experience to help us wrap our heads around both the  power structures and character development in Hamlet.

Using six-index cards, how might we create a model for the power structure within the six central characters of Hamlet? That's your challenge for the day.

Hamlet, Ophelia, Claudius, Polonious, Gertrude, Laertes

In addition to that design, you must also also identify whether each of the six characters is flat or round, static or dynamic and identify text evidence to prove your case.

All of this is in the service of developing your "To Be or Not to Be."  This is a means of exploring congruency -- determining how your soliloquy lines up with the rest of your interpretation of the work.
