Welcome back from your relaxing March break! here's the scoop: English 9 - We will be completing a research essay using the MLA format to cite your sources. THEN, you'll be presenting your findings to the rest of the class (likely next week). Your topic must be something related to Shakespeare's time (Elizabeth England), and should be approved by me. We reviewed a sample fake essay so you can see how your citations should look, and what the Works Cited page at the back should resemble. I've attached it to this post. For tomorrow, please have your topic chosen. English 121 - We will be conducting a day or two of research, then presenting (in the most creative ways possible) background relating to the setting of Shakespeare's Hamlet, which is medieval Denmark. I've attached the assignment to this post.
