Act V, Scene 1
The last scene in any act is often one of great importance – it acts not only as the summation of all that has taken place in the current act, but also has to set the audience up for the coming act. Keep this in mind as you cut, hack, slash, and otherwise edit these scenes down to mere shadows of their former selves!
Reduce your assigned scene from
. Cut lines from anywhere in the scene,
as long as the remaining lines still provide a coherent scene that serves the play.
Act & Scene
Each group must submit one final copy of their play with edited lines blacked out with pen or marker. I will then scan your edited scene and upload it to your section of this website so visitors may access it.
Write a rationale explaining your decisions. Address the following topics:
How this scene is significant to the act and/or play – what takes place here, and
why is it important
Explain the cuts you made (line-by-line or chunk-by-chunk is probably the best way to do this)
Explain why you kept the lines you did
Your rationale must make
reference to the text throughout
Cuts must be made from
Websites without visuals are not only boring to read, they're difficult to read. Consider the following design principles as you create your site:
write large chunks of text.
use headings to delineate between sections. Also, use paragraph breaks more frequently than you would in a regular written essay.
make this a simple essay that happens to be on a website,
create an interactive experience for the viewer by creating section headings and links for visitors to click.
rely strictly on words to create your page.
incorporate pictures portraying important parts of your scene - these will be staged by group members and posted to the site. Pictures should be captioned with lines from the play in
bold & italicized text
. If you or your parents do not wish to have your picture online, work as a group to develop a creative solution to obscure your faces/identity.
Your group will receive a shared grade for this project. You will be evaluated on:
the completion of a
the depth and specificity of your written analysis
the visual layout of your page (uniformity, logical presentation, etc.)
the inclusion of
self-generated pictures and their relevance to significant elements of your scene
You will also each receive an individual contribution grade. Each student will independently evaluate the contributions of the other students in the group, and I will derive a grade from those observations (we'll discuss this in class after the projects are complete).

You may print these out and use them as "rough drafts", but each group must submit a cleanly edited final scene by the due date.
