APE: To my skeptical, stressed-out scholars: I know it seems like a lot of work, but I promise you can accomplish all of this. This will be the largest Hamlet packet, so everything after this will be easy! Don’t sweat it. APE is a challenge, but you are up for it. I believe in you. [Don’t worry, your stress balls are coming!]
The following items need to be completed by Friday, October 14. It would be wise to complete the majority of these things today (10/11) and Thursday (10/13). Yes, you may have to complete some of this at home.
