10-second review: Give students a plot summary of a Shakespearean play. What questions do the students have about the play? Sample scenes from the play might answer some of these questions.
Title: Suggested by “ ‘Who’s There?’: Shakespeare and the Dragon of Autism.” C Renino. English Journal (September 2009), 50-55. The secondary school journal of the National Council of Teachers of English (NCTE).
Comment: The key will be the questions the students ask following the reading of the plot summary. Preparing scenes to perform or read aloud might answer some of the questions. Some of the questions are likely to be about the complicated plot. And the overall question is what is the significance of the play? RayS.
