These activities encourage kids to express their understanding of Hamlet by adopting various personas in interesting situations.
Students are provided with four choices in this Creative Activity for Act 2 of Hamlet.
Each prompt requires them to assume a different persona to discuss an important aspect of Act 2.
---To discuss Hamlet’s “antic disposition” students are to take the perspective of a Danish detective named Dagny Rasmussen, resident of Svenborg and write an investigative report about Hamlet’s mental condition following the death of his father.
Other topics include
---the similar plots of using indirection to find direction out,
---the theme of appearance vs. reality, and
---Fortinbras as a foil to Hamlet.
Each scenario includes “characters” with Danish names from Danish locations and other details.
Clear font and relevant graphics.
Very fun to write and very fun to read!
