Shaking Up Shakespeare: Bringing the Play Back into Shakespeare’s Plays

Shaking Up Shakespeare: Bringing the Play Back into Shakespeare’s Plays

Shannon Radcliffe, Lincoln Community High SchoolCollaboration 140

Groans erupt from your class as you announce the start of your next unit, Shakespeare. How do you combat the negative feelings students already have about Shakespeare? How do you make Shakespeare fresh for this generation of students? This presentation is full of ideas about how to combat some of the most common problems when teaching Shakespeare: language barriers, negative stereotypes, drama terms and vocabulary, disengagement, and boredom.
