This is a detailed description of a challenging project I do with my senior College Prep students after reading Hamlet. With a partner, they choose a literary theory (Marxist, Feminist, etc.), do research on that theory, and conduct a 20 minute presentation/discussion teaching their peers how the theory relates to Hamlet.
They then write a paper and an annotated bibliography.
This handout includes the project details along with detailed descriptions of 7 literary theories.
