ISU Presentations – Standing Female Nude (Lani)

I really enjoyed Lani’s visual essay. His creativity flourished in his video and I thought the cinematography was well done. I also thought his analysis of the invalidation of women as people was well explained, which reflects his confidence in presenting speeches. His discussion section was also done well, his answers staying relevant to the given questions.

Hamlet: Looking Back

Did you enjoy Hamlet? What was one major lesson learned throughout this unit?  

Personally, I thought that Hamlet was an interesting play, once I delved deeper into the themes of the play. With the help of the TOK connections we made, I learned that an action’s consequences will inevitably be uncertain due to the volatile nature of each and every individual’s morality. Hamlet’s internal conflict of inaction and action was left unsolved, and he instead adapted a laissez-faire mindset. It is also interesting how much I was able to relate to Hamlet.

HAMLET ACT III ANALYSIS

What did you learn from each presentation (including your own)? What did you enjoy the most about each presentation? What did you enjoy the least about each presentation?

I learned from Andrea and Lani’s presentation that angry can lead to impulsive actions that most certainly garner negative consequences. I enjoyed their modernized “To be or not to be” soliloquy, which was well-scripted and relevant to the context of the play. I also enjoyed their diorama, using colour to represent the difference emotions of each of the characters during the Dumb Play. I least enjoyed the TOK connection discussion, as I did not have a very deep and thought-out answer to their TOK questions.

HAMLET ACT II ANALYSIS

What did you learn from each presentation (including your own)? What did you enjoy the most about each presentation? What did you enjoy the least about each presentation?

From doing this presentation I learned that the way a person behaves does not imply they are the appearance they put out to be. I enjoyed that my presentation was very informative, but the time it took to give an almost line-by-line analysis of over 600 lines was not enjoyable.
