ENED 413 Teaching Shakespeare

As preservice teachers, you know that when you have your own classrooms, you will probably be teaching at least one Shakespeare play as part of the curriculum. The following question then arises: "How do I get my students interested in Shakespeare?" This class will focus on Shakespeare plays commonly found in the high school curriculum. As we work closely with the texts, we will explore a range of pedagogical strategies for engaging students in the plays. Drama in the classroom is one effective approach, so we will be learning various strategies that get students up on their feet. Because of the pedagogical focus, we will be concentrating on a few plays and then working with them in depth.
