Hamlet’s Soliloquy (1948-2009)

Wow! What a great collection of Hamlet GIFs.

I know it’s a tad early for Halloween-y things, BUT this is too much fun to pass up. No AP Lit tie-in.

This is why my class rule is: phones out and on your desk. If it’s that important, take the call or text, but if you are doing so on a regular basis your peers and I will notice and “check” the behavior.

Or, you can just turn the phone off and leave it off during class.

Ferguson is sixty-seven per cent black, but fifty of its fifty-three police officers are white. In Comment, Jelani Cobb reflects on disenfranchisement, disillusionment, and the protests following Michael Brown’s death.

What’s wrong with these numbers? I know, you signed up for AP Lit and I’m asking about current events or government or civics or something, right? But it’s all about reading and thinking. This time it’s not about “literature,” that just means I think you should be well-rounded in what you read and consider.
