2. Read Act III, scene 1 of Hamlet.
2. Begin memorizing the “To be or not to be” soliloquy up to the middle of line 75 “Must give us pause.” You will have to write down these lines in class from memory as a quiz on Friday.
Note: If you were absent, you must email me your homework by the end of the day for credit. Otherwise, you will receive a zero on it. (Naturally, if you are physically unable to do the homework, I need a note to that effect).
AP PSYCH AND LIT CLASS ONLY: Looking Ahead
We have covered a number of articles from Baumeister’s book together. Now, it’s time for us to read more of these articles. Here is the reading schedule for each article along with the assignments. If you are assigned to cover the article, you will be responsible for designing a lesson together with your partner(s) on the article. The lesson should touch upon as many of the concepts as possible in an engaging way that includes mini-lectures, small group work, and audio-visual presentation. Please mark your planners and let me know as soon as possible if there is any conflict you can spot (i.e. you have a college interview on the day you are scheduled to present etc.). If you cannot find your name, please email me immediately!

2. Read the soliloquy in Act II, scene 2, lines 575-634. Write on a separate sheet of paper (or type it, preferably): What is Hamlet saying? (Summarize) What problems is he trying to work out here? How do you relate (or not relate) to any of this?
