Challenging Normative Sexual and Gender Identity Beliefs through Romeo and Juliet
Ressler, Paula
English Journal, v95 n1 p52 Sep 2005
Paula Ressler, an English teacher, suggests unconventional ways to work with William Shakespeare's "Romeo and Juliet" in the secondary school English curriculum to challenge normative sexual and gender identity beliefs. Reading queerly to explore non-normative sex and gender identities and reading for social justice have the potential to include all students in meaningful dialogue and to create engaged and successful learners and caring school communities.
