Learners will develop an understanding (and hopefully an appreciation) of Shakespeare. Their reading fluency will improve. They will also be able to comprehend the play. I will show brief clips of summaries to ensure understanding of each act and scene.

Homework will be assigned for each class. Homework is optional. 
No Fear Shakespeare Hamlet ISBN: 978-1-58663-844-3
I will provide a grade report to any learner who has completed the assignments. 
50 minutes per week in class, and an estimated 0 - 1 hours per week outside of class.
It's a Shakespeare play, so there will be murders, plots of revenge, and devious behavior. Shakespeare also used curse words in his plays.
