Teaching Hamlet with Castle Learning

February 5, 2019

/ by

Jeff Hersh


William Shakespeare's plays may have been written over 400 years ago, but the themes, characters, and lessons found in the plays are still relevant today. Shakespeare tapped into the psychology of human beings and explored stories in both genres of Tragedy and Comedy. Hamlet is one of the most taught Shakespeare works and is considered one of the greatest tragedies in all of literature.


The play explores the struggles of the Prince of Denmark, Hamlet, who is seeking revenge in the aftermath of his father’s death. The play delves into the themes of revenge, including the causes and consequences of acting upon it, morality, and the choosing of doing what’s right over what’s wrong, and madness.    


With Castle Learning, teachers can access 229 questions about Hamlet. Teachers will find a combination of question types available to assess comprehension of the play including multiple choice, short answer, fill-in-the-blank, and constructed/extended response.


Questions are broken down into sections by acts, and there is also a study app available for purchase for students to continue their study of the play.


Teachers can use the content in any way that helps them teach the play. They can even input their own questions, allowing complete control over how they guide students to explore and create meaning from the text.
