Critical Practice: Teaching "Shakespeare."
Mellor, Bronwyn; Patterson, Annette
Journal of Adolescent & Adult Literacy, v43 n6 p508-17 Mar 2000
Describes how the authors taught their students to read "Hamlet" from a critical literacy perspective, analyzing how particular readings of texts and characters are constructed or produced; how they are determined by historical and cultural conventions; analyzing values that various readings support or challenge--rather than trying to get closer to the "true character" of Gertrude, Ophelia, or Hamlet.
