Hamlet’s Truth

As an ESL teacher in South Korea, I was tasked with creating lessons that integrated drama and language learning.  This video represents a unit I prepared that made Shakespeare accessible by translating it into simplified, every day language.  My students were then tasked with creating a script depicting one of the scenes of the play, and to rehearse speaking and acting out the scene.  We then decided to share the scene by animating it, using xtranormal.com.   Animated, voiced and edited by Hannah* and Daniel*, this video features the scene from Hamlet, where the young prince learns from his ghost father of his uncle’s deception.  The kids had a blast practicing and revising the scene!
