examine Shakespeare’s Hamlet. The
tragedy of Hamlet develops many
central ideas, including revenge, mortality, madness, and the tension between
action and inaction. Students analyze the play through the close study of

select lessons supplements students’ understanding of plot and background
points and encourages them to consider actors’ interpretations of the text.

You will work in groups of 4-5 people; each group will be responsible for researching and presenting their information pertaining to the times of Julius Caesar to the class through a PowerPoint presentation.

Your PowerPoint should be an overview of your topic—you should have information [notecards] with you to help you teach more information to the class. Topics and partners will be assigned to you.  Each person in the group is responsible for speaking during the presentation; make sure you organize PRIOR to the presentation who will be doing what. There will be responsibilities of the group, in order to earn the group grade, and responsibilities of you as an individual, to earn an individual grade. Everyone will be quizzed on the material at the end.
