Filed under: Agenda — hargraves @ 1:39 pm

We got a lot accomplished today!  Here’s the agenda we covered:

  • Journal
  • Finish reading Act III in small groups
  • Small group discussion: questions 1-11, p. 874
  • Shakespeare’s Epitaph

For the epitaph, students were asked to work in groups of two or three.  I read them the epitaph Shakespeare wrote for his own tomb.  Students were instructed to write six lines (three rhyming couplets) in iambic pentameter.  I also asked them to be sure to use an eloquent, formal tone in their epitaphs. 

Hopefully, we will finish the play next week. 

Have a wonderful weekend!  Happy Chinese New Year.
