Hamlet Creative Project Options (English IV- Hutson)
Below are some suggested ideas for your creative project for Hamlet. Please be aware that the most important thing is to show your depth of knowledge and understanding of the play. It should be evident that whatever you do demonstrates a key idea from the play. The project is worth 50 points, and an in-class essay will be worth another 50 points. Have fun with this!
NOTE: Every option must include at least two lines from the play that inspired your project. These will be at the top of the page (like a title) and labeled INSPIRATION:
- Create a thematic poster focusing on 2 topics/themes from the play. Must be detailed and include quotes to support your ideas. See me for detailed instructions. Be prepared to present it to the class.
- Write three diary entries OR dramatic monologues from the point of view of Horatio, Gertrude, or Ophelia. Each entry/monologue should be between two and three typed pages. Each entry must occur at a particular point during the course of the play (Acts 1-5), and each must include very specific references to words/dialogue in the play. You do NOT need to present these.
- Select one important scene from each act and illustrate it. These must be your OWN creatively designed illustrations and may NOT be copied from other artistic representations of the play/characters. Be prepared to present your illustrations to the class with a brief oral commentary on each one. They should be large enough to show to the class OR you should put copies of them into a computer slideshow (to present).
- Select a passage/monologue of a minimum of 20 lines to memorize and present to the class (in an appropriate tone) or to me during support. You may also choose to memorize and present a scene from the play with a partner. Complete a detailed analysis of the monologue, along with a one page character analysis. You may also choose to memorize and present a scene from the play with a partner. (See me for details.)
- Write an extended poem or a series of shorter poems inspired by characters or events in the play. They should in some way address a topic of the play, leading to a theme(s). These should reflect thought and effort.
- Write lyrics and compose a song inspired by Hamlet. This can focus on a particular theme, character, or the story itself. It must reflect your deep understanding of the chosen topic.
- Create the front page of a Hamlet inspired newspaper. The edition should be set just after the end of the play. It must be poster sized and colorful and include at least six pieces (see me for specific directions). Be prepared to present this.
- Write and illustrate a full childrens book or graphic novel, telling an act (or more) of Hamlet. This can be done as a slideshow.
- Paint/draw at least 2 pictures depicting a scene from the play. This must show time and effort. Each must be accompanied by a detailed description (one page each) of the scenes, and should include a reflection of your inspiration for the pieces.
- Create your own crash course style video that teaches about one of the major themes in Hamlet. The video must be at least 3 minutes long, and include specific examples/quotes from the text to support your ideas. This will be presented in class.
