Topic: Reading a Shakespearian Sonnet

10-second review: Projects large image of the sonnet on a screen. Three readings aloud by students of the sonnet before discussion.

Title: “Reading Shakespeare’s Sonnet 20, Not Once But Thrice.” R Diguette. Teaching English in Two-Year Colleges (December 2008), 192-193. A publication of the National Council of Teachers of English (NCTE).

Comment: Author says this technique appeals to students who are not readers. I think it increases focus on the text. I also think that having three students read the sonnet aloud helps the entire class focus on the meaning. I hope students who are to read aloud have time to prepare themselves before reading. I like the idea. RayS.
