Schupak, Esther B. – Changing English: Studies in Culture and Education, 2018
Although performance-based pedagogy has clearly given new life to the study of Shakespeare, with 'performance' or 'active' approaches becoming increasingly dominant as a method, acquiring the status of "the" 'proper' way to teach Shakespeare, it is important to examine the limitations of this method. This article will begin by surveying…

Wolfsdorf, Adam – Changing English: Studies in Culture and Education, 2018

While the narrative of the Player King and Player Queen clearly works to tap into the private guilt of…
