Grade 11 ELA Module 1, Unit 2, Lesson 3

Students in classroom

In this lesson, students read the end of Claudius’s monologue to Hamlet, in which he instructs Hamlet to “throw to earth” his grief and to remain at the court of Denmark rather than return to his studies in Wittenberg. Having previously focused on the development of Hamlet’s character, students now shift their focus to the development of Claudius in this monologue.
