Objective: I can practice "reading" through both the psychoanalytical lens and the archetypal lens to have a better understanding of which fits my interests in order to select my lens for reading Hamlet. Agenda:
Entry Task: MC #28
Review your notes on what it means to read through a critical lens from the prezi.
Follow along to the prezi directions from slide 22.
If you are on the left of the room, read the poem using the psychological lens.
If you are on the right of the room, read the picture using the psychological lens.
Meet in the middle with a partner and discuss then switch sides.
Now, read the opposite of what you read before through the archetypal lens.
Select a partner near you and share your insights thus far.
See the Shmoop analysis--which of your lenses got you close to what is discussed here or gave you ideas you found interesting?
Watch the Hamlet video in the prezi and consider which aspects you find most interesting.
Exit Task: What is critical theory? What stood out to you for the psychological? The archetypal? Which did you select? Why? Do you feel this was an effective way to be introduced to the idea of critical theory and select your lens?
