Intermission: Shakespeare's 'To Be or Not to Be,' With a Melody

by Nina Lincoff

November 15, 2011

In case you thought high school can't be awesome, Courtney Welbon's Advanced Placement English project provides evidence to the contrary. While reading William Shakespeare's Hamlet, Welbon was assigned to to memorize the famous "To be or not to be" sollioquy. She figured it would be easier with a melody. And a ukelele. Obviously.

So if you're looking down the nose of a tough project, follow Welbon's lead. We're not saying you should go out and purchase a ukelele (though more ukeleles in the world couldn't hurt), but try turning it into a project you can love.

If you were wondering, she got an A+.
