Pre-Reading Activity: Hamlet
Twitter is an online social networking and microblogging service that enables users to send and read "tweets".
Tweets are similar to text messages. Tweets however are limited to 140 characters.
Today, you will be using the Edmodo accounts you set up to respond to the various scenarios that come up during this Prezi. Whenever this Prezi indicates, write down your "tweet" in the corresponding updates I've shared with you.
Let's Begin...
You are away at your dream college. It is your junior year and life couldn't be better.
Its Monday night: 2AM
Your mom texts you the following message:
Jolted awake by adrenaline you call her. She answers the phone but her sobs are so loud you can barely understand what she is saying. Finally, you are able to understand the words "Your father is dead..."
So... What's your tweet?
Unfortunately, this semester you are taking Engineering Mechanics and your professor is really stern. When you tell him about your father he gives you his sympathy but says that you still need to take your final next Friday or retake the course.
He forces you to miss your dad's funeral...
So what's your tweet?
Finals End. You barely pass all of your classes. It has been two weeks since your father's death, you are completely devastated and you are heading home for break.
So you load up the car and drive home.
When you get home you hug your mom for a long time but you sense something is wrong.
She's not upset. At least not as upset as she should be...
Then you notice she is wearing a wedding ring on her finger. A brand new wedding ring...
So what's your tweet?
Your mom tells you she has some news. She has remarried your father's brother, your Uncle Claude.
You never liked your Uncle Claude. He had always been jealous of your father for taking over the family business. He often complained about his own job and looked always creeped you out with the way he looked at your mom.
Uncle Claude
What's your tweet now?
One night, your father's ghost comes to you in a dream. He lets you in on a little secret... he was murdered by your uncle.
He wants you to avenge him...
Was the dream real? Will you kill your uncle?
What's your tweet?
