Week 15: April 30-May 2. View Much A Do About Nothing.Study Questions for Much Ado About Nothing.
You do not need to turn in the study questions. Instead use them to help as a guide to reading the play and to take the Blackboard quiz on the play. I will announce when the quiz will open. Depending on the amount of time we devote to our poetry discussion, we may need to finish the movie the day of the final exam. The Much A Do quiz will take the place of the final exam; however, each student will be asked to say something about literature and how his/her views on literature may have changed during the semester. So your final exam for English 131 will be a combination of a 25 point quiz on Much A Do and a brillaint statement on literature the day of your final exam. I will prepare a formally stated prompt for students to answer for the final period. Of course attendance is required the day of final exam.
