Subject: Syllabi and Papers
It's that time of the year again, time to prepare syllabi for the fall.
I was wondering if some of you would be willing to answer the following
questions: 1) How many plays do you read in your Shakespeare course during the
semester? (For our two semester Shakespeare sequence, I usually teach twelve
plays during each 14-week semester; some of my Shakespearean friends--and most
of my students--think that is too many.) 2) How many papers do you assign?
3) What kinds of papers do you assign? Are they long or short? Do they
involve reading and responding to criticism? Do they involve performance?
Enquiring minds want to know. Thank you.
