Today we will begin wrapping up Hamlet.  After the excitement of last week, we will focus on Hamlet and open-ended AP prompts this week.  

First, we will finish our discussion of cutting Scenes 1, 2, 3, and 4 of Act 4.  Then, we will have time to work on our quote selection and explication for our graded discussion tomorrow.  Here is the assignment:
