Using Theater to Teach History in an English Class: An Experiment in Arts Integration
Weber, Joan
Teaching Artist Journal, v3 n2 p112-116 Jun 2005
History gets a really bad "rep" in school. History teachers seemed to do everything they could to suck the interesting out of history, leaving only names, dates, and battles to memorize until the test was over. History can be brought up on its feet and given room to play when it's combined with theater. They work so well together. In this article, the author describes how theater can be used to teach history in an English class in a Shakespeare-focused residency.
