Blog post #3 due
Given the calendar between now and May 5, presenters are limited to 15–count ’em–15 minutes each.
As a foundation for your presentation, use a three-slide format to address the following questions. The spirit of this presentation is to communicate with your classmates about something that means something to you. This is one more chance to help them know who you are and what catches your heart and mind.
- Where does your interest come from?
- What main question(s) drove your reading?
- What insights are emerging from your reading?
As I watch and listen, I will use these questions?
Is the presenter
- communicating clearly by anticipating the audience’s needs?
- talking to us, rather than reading to us?
- focusing the presentation on the guide questions listed above?
In a piece of writing of two to four hundred words, explain three major exclusions your group decided on, and how your chosen themes informed those decisions. Conclude with any new insights about these themes that came out of your preparation and performance.
Compose this piece on your own, without consulting members of your group. Submit to TURNITIN before the class that follows your performance day.
learning goal: how does play hang together with our chosen theme(s)?
prep time (half class)
performances (recorded)–two to three minutes per presentation
reflection-assessment (TBA) write this independently of your group members, and submit it to TURNITIN before next class
learning goal: what prominent themes run throughout the entire play?
time to prepare (and perform?) the groups’ mini-Hamlet presentations
Hamlet 2-3-minute presentation guidelines
- mark the themes (one from each side of the Act 5 sheet) that guide your decisions about what to include and exclude; be ready to explain your decisions in light of these themes—in speaking and/or writing
- at least half of the lines come directly from Shakespeare’s text; feel free to paraphrase/rephrase others
- feel free to perform your version as a traditional dumb show—i.e., in mime, without any spoken lines
- feel free to make imaginative use of props and costumes (think symbolically)
- troupe members share fairly in both the preparation and performance
