Hamlet Journal Prompts description
This PowerPoint presentation contains 11 journal prompts. I have my students keep a journal throughout the year and assign entries related to the literature we are reading in addition to current events. The purpose of the journal is for the students to make a connection between the topics found in the literature and modern society. Journals are considered informal writing in my classroom. I ask the students to write approximately one half to one full page. I do not mark off for spelling or grammatical errors as it is their ideas I am most interested in with this activity.
I also have this in a PowerPoint. You can find that here: http://www.teacherspayteachers.com/Product/Hamlet-Journal-Prompts
