collaboratory update

Collaboration means working together to achieve a goal.  In the long term, we are learning to think and understand authors (including each other) at a deeper level.  In the short term we have a vocabulary list and a troubled prince on the agenda.  Right now it's time to stand and be counted.

Whether it's here, FB, or via another channel, please reach out and start conversations with your peers about how to organize yourselves and your time in class Monday for maximal benefit.  By Friday you need to master Act II of Hamlet and this week's vocabulary, and you should be making solid progress on your literature analysis book so you can start answering questions next weekend.  "To be or not to be" is also waiting in the wings; you'll need to know it by heart for next Monday, October 15.  Tomorrow (Monday, 10.8) is an "early out" and you'll have a journal topic, so there will only be 20 minutes of working time-- we can't afford to squander it asking each other, "So, what do you want to do?"

So, what do you want to do?

  1. You should let us recite the soliloquy in a video again. It was easier for some people and doesn't take up as much class time if we aren't reciting them all in class. It isn't like we aren't getting it to the same audience, in fact, it is a much larger one with a video on the internet.
