Grade 11 ELA Module 1, Unit 2, Lesson 6

Students studying

In this lesson students read and analyze Laertes’s farewell monologue to Ophelia and a brief conversation between Ophelia and Laertes on lines 1–55 of Act 1.3. This selection provides an opportunity for students to engage with concepts such as gender roles, family duty, and chastity, which will be important for Ophelia’s character development and crucial to students’ understanding of the excerpt from Virigina Woolf’s A Room of One’s Own in 11.1.3.
