Scribe Notes: October 19, 2009
The Plan for Today:
comparing the opening scenes
Reading Act One through Scene 3 (Characters were assigned last Wednesday:see previous post)
What are your impressions of Hamlet, Claudius and Gertrude?
Watched three versions of the opening scenes of Hamlet and wrote about our impressions and what we think is going on.....Really bad special effects involved.
Overall, a simple day. Just make sure you're up to date on Hamlet and know whats going on. If you are presenting in the fischbowl on Friday make sure you have a syllabus prepared for Smith when first come into class. If you are discussing, or if you are blogging try to know what is going on. :)

Ms. Smith is allowing us to read Hamlet for the first section of Hamlet. Ms. Smith set us up with parts for Act 1:
Claudius (King)-Adam Blank
These are the parts that will be played and by whom in act 1 on Monday.
Ms. Smith then allowed us to get our groups together for the fishbowl. She told us to exchange emails. She also told us to try to get phone numbers so that we can communicate. Period ended early due to PSAT.
