Subject:        Pedagogy: Course Structure

Dear SHAKSPERians,

I'm interested in learning how other teachers of Shakespeare structure
their courses.  I'm asking here about organizational patterns and
approaches other than the usual division of the plays into genres or
time periods, i.e., approaches that help unify the material even when it
falls within courses entitled "Shakespeare's Comedies" or "Shakespeare
to 1601."  In other words, how do we build the course (through
selection, through emphasis on certain themes, or through 16th century
history, for example) to prevent it from becoming a serial reading of
discrete plays?  What works and what doesn't work?

Thanks,  Bob White
