Questions for discussion 18, 19

you may also use your project prompt to guide your discussion
 
Finish your t-chart (Cornell Notes) for your project/essay. I want to see a progression of your theme throughout the entire play therefore I expect 5-6 quotes from each Act. the t-chart should have the quote on the left side (act/scene/lines) and then your analysis on the right side of the page. I would like these handwritten on binder paper ( college rule) no more than 3 quotes per page (side) which means I expect to see the analysis side of the paper filled up! So - today you should have 25-30 quotes with analysis to support your theme/project. I will collect these notes today and return them to you tomorrow - I will not accept these late - this assignment has its own point value outside of the essay. 50 pts
 
Please try to extend your analysis here - do not regurgitate Sparks or Schmoop - I'm looking for depth and insight here - new ideas - be bold - but be able to prove your thesis.
