Hamlet Create a Modern-Day Cast and Plot

Hamlet Create a Modern-Day Cast and Plot
Product Description
This Hamlet activity requires students to first provide photographs from the internet or print sources to depict the main characters introduced in Act 1 of Hamlet.

They must write an essay discussing their choice.

Students are then required to locate photos of modern movie or TV characters who possess similar personality traits as the Shakespeare characters.

This too requires an accompanying discussion.

Finally, students must discuss the conflicts, introduced in Act 1, that each character must manage and parallel these conflicts with similar modern day obstacles that the characters might encounter.

I use this with Act 1, but the activity could be used with other acts or other literature. It might even be a fun, imaginative activity to assign in a history class.

Clear font.

Two graphics used for examples.

Rubric included.

Thank you for your consideration.
