Revisiting Ophelia


In this lesson, students review the central ideas they identified in the excerpt from A Room of One’s Own before using those concepts as a lens through which to read an additional excerpt from Hamlet. Students listen to a masterful reading of the excerpt, which centers on Ophelia’s descent into madness, before engaging in a class discussion. Following this discussion, students prepare for the End-of-Unit Assessment by using the Cross-Text Evidence Collection Tool on Woolf and Ophelia to collect evidence about the relationship of Ophelia to the ideas expressed by Virginia Woolf in the excerpt from A Room of One’s Own.
