Basics without Boredom? With Imagination, Yes!
Hunter, Florence
On the premise that the aim of high school and college English teachers is to intensify students' powers of thinking and feeling and to keep themselves alive while doing so, this paper suggests numerous imaginative activities for use in the classroom. The activities include a Victorian panel discussion, a presentation of early English ballads, enjoyable ways to learn vocabulary, a "talk show" with authors from the Romantic Age, the study of literature of the supernatural and the witchcraft trials, and composition of an essay on values based on interviews with adults in three age groups.
