I feel that the best way to experience Shakespeare is not only to read and analyze the text but also to memorize and act the scenes. Each of you will be assigned an acting group. Based some on your surveys and some on your "performance" in class, you will be cast in a role in one of several scenes from various Shakespeare comedies and tragedies. Some of you will have large parts with lots of memorization while others will have small roles. What would be your suggestion for a fair evaluation of that scene? Considering that the group may need costume/prop help, should the people with smaller roles have other responsibilities? (introduction, written reflection, directing???) Let me know what you think. Scenes will be assigned on Friday.
