Susan Friedman – CEA Forum, 2023
Current research suggests that students who struggle with grammar, spelling, mechanics and other "problems of ability," as well as students who suffer from "problems of engagement," as well as those students who see reading and writing as a chore, can benefit from creative writing assignments and learn to enjoy reading and…

Niamh J. O'Leary – CEA Forum, 2023
The benefits of performance-based classroom approaches to teaching Shakespeare have been well-documented in pedagogical scholarship. This paper is an effort to push beyond the performance-based classroom and begin to incorporate ideas from the field of performance studies into a new pedagogical approach that capitalizes on my institution's…

Jessica Winston – CEA Forum, 2023
The purpose of this article is to provide an introductory survey of the field that might be called "mediated theatre studies"--that is, the study of recordings of theatrical performances. The survey has three parts. First, I chart broad trends in the research. Next, I review types and capabilities of some of the longer-running digital…

Jayme Yeo – CEA Forum, 2023
Over the past decade, local live productions of Shakespeare have become increasingly visible to scholars and audiences alike, both through critical work on the subject as well as through public projects such as Shakespeare on the Road.

Wall, K. Blaine – CEA Forum, 2021
Given the political and social fragmentation and incivility that currently exists in America, this paper examines existing scholarship on diversifying the American literary canon in order to increase cultural literacy and to encourage reflective and critical conversations about modern-day issues of social justice.

Scharnhorst, Rhiannon – CEA Forum, 2021
In this age of PDFs and free e-texts, literature gets separated from its initial context, perhaps even devoid of context all together. Taking Roald Dahl's most anthologized short story "Lamb to the Slaughter" as its object of study, this article proposes a pedagogy that embraces the return of paratextual material to the literature…

Leporati, Matthew – CEA Forum, 2021
This article explores how college instructors can use William Blake's unique pairing of image and text -- what W.J.T. Mitchell calls "composite art" -- to encourage students to think and write about the dynamic interplay of image and text in modern communications. Opening with an anecdote of teaching Songs of Innocence and of Experience…

Huang, Yi-Wen – CEA Forum, 2021
I have been teaching English composition for almost 9 years at a 2-year branch campus near the Navajo reservation in New Mexico.

Based on my observation, the majority of my students in remedial English composition classes had difficulties in reading…

Davidson, Guy – CEA Forum, 2021
Using as a case study the experience of teaching Jane DeLynn's "Leash" (2002), a "pornosophical" novel about a sadomasochistic lesbian relationship, I argue in this essay for the pedagogical value of shock. I argue that shocking works of pornography can unsettle not only students' comfortable understandings of sexuality, but…

Winston, Jessica – CEA Forum, 2019
As a relatively common tool and object of analysis in teaching Shakespeare and dramatic literature in general, live performance deserves further attention within the pedagogical literature. This is even more true now, since the development of digitally relayed live broadcasts has widened access to theatre, creating greater possibilities for…

Raymond, Rich – CEA Forum, 2019
To challenge resistance to required literature courses, instructors quiz students regularly on the readings; they also require examinations that ask students to define key terms, to answer background questions focused on authors and dates, to identify key passages by author/title/speaker, and to explain the thematic significance of each quotation.…

Connors-Manke, Beth – CEA Forum, 2019
In face-to-face conversation, it's easy to react with shock and moralism to the incivility enabled by social media, easy to lament that we live in an era when communication has gone wrong. The digital era, however has also reinvigorated voice--both written and spoken--in other, less toxic, ways. We've seen a resurgence in oral composition (think:…
