Hamlet: Act I Scene V - Google Slides, Close Reading, Textual Analysis
NO PREP - PRINT AND GO OR GO INTERACTIVE WITH THE GOOGLE LINK
FOUR DAY CLASS SCHEDULE
TEACHER NOTES INCLUDED
TASK CARDS INCLUDED
I teach Great Speeches, or small segments of the Great Books, at the beginning of the semester as a way to engage my students in Higher Order Thinking, Close Reading, and Textual Analysis.
Included in this unit are the following:
➢ Hamlet Act I Scene V (excerpt - Ghost of Hamlet’s father) as a PDF.
➢ Google Slides component with 13 slides containing some images, student questions, answer boxes, and two blank slides for student notes.
➢ The same content in the Slides but as a PDF with 10 fill-in-the-blank questions and 6 Textual Analysis/Close Reading questions.
➢ Teacher notes contained in the teacher version of Google Slides with 13 slides. If you wish to add anything there are two extra Slides for further notes.
➢ A reading test on the reading selection with nine multiple-choice and True and False questions and six words to define.
➢ An explanation of how I use this speech in my classes.
➢ A four day class schedule.
➢ Examples of student mark ups to show to your students so that they can see what others have done. I find this helps as students sometimes don’t quite know what is expected of them. I ask them to do the mark up using my Interpretive Note-Taking Guide.
➢ No prep - the unit is ready to go - simply share the file with your students (a link is provided) and they answer the questions on their computers (at home or in class). No printing and no lost assignments.
➢ Using Google Classroom is an exciting new way to engage your students!!!
➢ The slides contain a series of questions that test reading comprehension as well as engage the students in textual analysis. Students type in answers on their computers (everything is automatically saved in Google Drive).
➢ Students cannot lose their assignments - check your students' work in the revision history to see what they finished and when they finished it.
➢ I use Google Classroom for all of my assignments. I create the assignment in Google slides or as a Google doc - I post the assignment and Google Classroom makes a copy of the file (for each student) - they simply hit “turn in” when they are ready to submit. It’s accessible anywhere through Google Chrome. It is their own file with their name on it. They may also share the file with you or with other students when they are doing group work.
➢ IF YOUR STUDENTS ARE NOT USING COMPUTERS THEY MAY STILL DO THIS ASSIGNMENT. PRINT AND DISTRIBUTE OR USE WITH A SMART BOARD AND ENGAGE THE ENTIRE CLASS
