Practical Approaches to Teaching Shakespeare

This special topic panel will demystify the pedagogical puzzle of
teaching the Bard of Avon to willing (and sometimes unwilling) students.
Successful proposals will outline practical (i.e. leave the Piaget at
home) methods for teaching language, plot, performance, characterization,
symbols, themes, etc. in Shakespeare's plays or poems. Tell the story of
the class that went wrong or conduct a teaching demonstration with the
panel audience so everyone can see your brilliant strategies. Papers or
demonstrations should focus on teaching college-level courses
introductory, intermediate, or advanced.
