Learning about Shakespeare!

Posted: January 20, 2017 in Uncategorized

Hello everyone!

Today, in my class of 4 ESO, we were to read Shakespeare’s poem “all the world’s a stage”. Instead of explaining the context of this poem myself, we used the Cooperative Learning structure: the four wise men (ladies, in this particular case). I asked four students to find some facts in advance about Shakespeare, the play As you like it, the main characters and the context of this poem. Each of these students were in a classroom corner and one classmate from each team gathered around and listened to them. When they learnt the info, they went back to their teams and shared it with the rest of the team members. In this way, all four team members learnt about the context and could read the poem more easily.

I send some pics I took while the “wise ladies” were performing their role as mini-teachers.

I hope you enjoy it!
