Teaching Shakespeare: Resource Units in Language Arts for Secondary Schools.
New York City Board of Education, Brooklyn, NY. Bureau of Curriculum Development.
The first step in teaching a play by Shakespeare is to acquaint the class with the meaning of the words. Frequent interruptions in the reading of a play in the beginning to insure understanding is another advisable technique. Reading with a colleague, student dramatization and choral reading are other useful oral methods. Filmstrips, stimulating class discussions, and home reading assignments are important elements in the learning process. (CK)
