Classical Humanities for High School Students.
Champlin, Marjorie W.
Several creative classroom activities related to literary studies are discussed in this article. The plays of Plautus, Aeschylus, Sophocles, Euripides, Shakespeare, Giraudoux, O'Neill, Anouilh, T. S. Eliot, and Goethe are read as the basis for comparative studies. The author discusses the problem of reading Latin plays in translation and comments on student plays and interdisciplinary projects. A seminar planned around the character of Socrates is examined. (RL)
