Class Experience

Learners will be able to:
- break text into smaller, manageable chunks and decode them
- build self-esteem by reading aloud and interpreting challenging text
- appreciate how literature and theatre connect us to our world and each other
- sketch a drawing interpretation of each chunk of text
- demonstrate use of prior knowledge about English literary elements and human nature
- continue their learning after class by reciting the monologue and describing its significance
- find and utilize a variety of literary elements (including parts of speech and syntax)
- further discover and trust their own learning process
- (best of all) apply knowledge and skills from this class to other Shakespearean texts they encounter

While this is a participation-based class, (teacher) understands that some students may not take as much of an active role in class discussion. (He/She) also understands that this does not mean they aren't actively engaged. There is no formal assessment, but students will be encouraged to take part in the discussion as much as they are willing and or facilitate additional discussion within their family after the class.
55 minutes per week in class, and no time outside of class.
Please bring to class a printed copy of each of the two PDF documents Lisa has created for this lesson.
