In this lesson, students reread the scene at Ophelia’s grave in order to analyze how Shakespeare develops his characters through their responses to Ophelia’s death. This lesson integrates RL.11-12.2 and RL.11-12.3 for a complex analysis of how character development (as a textual element) impacts central ideas.
