Topic: Interpreting Shakespeare

10-second review: Technique for interpreting Shakespearean passages.

Title: Suggested by “ ‘The Lash of Film’: New Paradigm of Visuality in Teaching Shakespeare.” JH Cabat. English Journal (September 2009), 56-57. The secondary school publication of the National Council of Teachers of English (NCTE).

Summary: Take passages of 10-12 lines from Shakespeare, and students are required to reduce their meaning to 140 characters, the size of a “twit” or “tweet,” whichever term you prefer.

Comment: Sounds like fun. RayS.
