Thursday, April 6th

We continued working on the Act One assignment for the first 45 minutes of class.  If you were away today, you can do this at lunch Monday or Wednesday of next week.

Each person was then given a different passage from II.i.-III.iii..  Find the passage and figure out:

  1.  who is speaking to whom?
  2. what is being said?
  3. why is it said?  what is the context?
  4. how is it said?  what effect is created through the use of language (connotations, devices…)   10 marks
  5. what is the purpose of this passage?  (to advance the plot, to reveal character, to create atmosphere? to establish theme?…)   3 marks

As we read through the upcoming scenes, YOU will explain your passage aloud as we come to it.  The class agreed that this would be worth 20 marks.  If you weren’t here, you can come and pick up your passage from me.

We started reading, viewing and discussing Act Two, getting as far as II.i.56.
