Hamlet Act Three and Four
We spent a lot of time reading today. I wanted us to get into a sort of rhythm in today's reading, and I feel like we did just that. So much happened in our reading-- Polonius is no longer, Gertrude thinks that Hamlet has completely lost his mind, and Claudius has hatched a plan to "off" Hamlet in England. Phew!
Next class, we're going to continue reading, but we're also going to take a look at the plans you've all developed for our skull project. The inspiration for this project comes from the Skull-A-Day website and the book that we shared in class. The book is an extension of the Skull-A-Day project that author/ artist Noah Scalin started in 2007. I found the picture contained in this post on Scalin's website. I can't wait to see what you all come up with!
