Presentations begin Wednesday, Feb. 12 with Act 2, Scene 3, lines 106-116. I will announce the rest of the schedule on Monday, Feb. 10.

  1. Read your passage to the class.
  2. Give a 1-2 sentence snapshot summary of the passage.
  3. “Translate” the passage or explain what’s going on, including the context (what has just happened before this speech).
  4. Identify the importance of the passage. Does it reveal Shakespeare’s tone? Is it a pivotal moment? Is it especially revealing of a character’s “character”? Is it a critical moment in the tragic hero’s journey? Does it reveal the theme of the play?
  5. Analyze how Shakespeare uses diction, literary devices, rhetorical techniques, poetic devices, etc. to convey the importance of the passage.



AFTER YOUR PRESENTATION IS GIVEN, YOU HAVE ONE CLASS DAY TO SUBMIT A WRITTEN REPORT. Please follow the examples I have given you.
