Pickings from the Cherry Orchard: Teaching Literature through Performance.
English in Australia, n132 p29-35 Nov 2001
Takes a "snapshot" of a senior Literature class to see how all the participants--including the teacher--developed greater sophistication in their reading skills, while simultaneously cultivating their pleasure and appreciation of more challenging texts. Explores other aspects of the "interpretive community" of the classroom, including reflective journaling and the value of persevering with "difficult" texts. (RS)
