Brevity is the Soul of Expression - Hamlet Project
Project at a Glance
What is character?
How does an individual's choices shape his or her character?
What does an individual's choices and actions express about him or herself?
Students will read and perform William Shakespeare's enduring play Hamlet and consider the major themes and ideas presented by the Shakespearian oeuvre. Throughout the course of this project, students will parallel ideas and perceptions of choice and action from the literature with their personal interpretations and experiences. In this process students will ultimately reflect on these themes in their individual lives through the development and creation of a character analysis essay and visual representation.
