CFP: Practical Approaches to Teaching Shakespeare (3/1/06; RMMLA, 10/12/06-10/14/06)
October 12-14, 2006
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.
Please email abstracts (less than one page, typed) to Bethany Blankenship
at b_blankenship_at_umwestern.edu. Deadline for abstract submission is
March 1, 2006. Panelists MUST become members of RMMLA by April 1, 2006 in
order to participate.
