    Your first assignment this week is your last assignment from last week:  create a study guide for use during Hamlet

    If you already completed this in session 2, you don't have to do it again this week.

    If you didn't complete it last week, then do it this week and you can include information from acts 4 and 5.

    This study guide will be created with the rest of the class in a wiki, which is just a website that's easy to edit.

    Each student must make at least 3 significant contributions to the wiki.   A significant contribution will be one of at least 150 words.  

    For example, a student might add a character description for Rosencrantz, a summary of Act 2, and a study guide question for Act 2 along with an answer.  Each contribution is worth 15 points for a maximum of 45 points total.  

    After each contribution include your (Your first name Last name initial).  For example, (Laura L.)

    The wiki will include these sections:

    • background information on Shakespeare
    • list of characters in Hamlet along with detailed descriptions of each character
    • list of tough vocabulary from the play; each word must be defined and include a citation for where it is in the play
    • summary of each scene in each act of Hamlet
    • list of study questions for each act of the play (can be copied from another website as long as the question is also answered in your own words)
    • list of themes found in Hamlet with supporting details on why they're themes. Why are these themes still important today?
    • list of websites with helpful information on Hamlet along with 2-3 sentences describing the website and why you think it's helpful
    • summary of reviews of various movie versions of Hamlet (2-3 sentences each max)
    • images from movie and play versions of Hamlet along with a 2-3 sentence explanation of what scene it is showing

    Once you've made your wiki contributions on the wiki, copy your text to a document and submit for assignment 3.25.  (Right-click so you keep your place in this week's session.) 

    Don't forget to add your name to each contribution in the Hamlet Wiki - ex. (Laura L.)
