The Tragical History of the Life and Death of Doctor Faustus

The Tragical History of the Life and Death of Doctor Faustus, commonly referred to simply as Doctor Faustus, is an Elizabethan tragedy by Christopher Marlowe, based on German stories about the title character Faust, that was first performed sometime between 1588 and Marlowe's death in 1593. Two different versions of the play were published in the Jacobean era, several years later. The powerful effect of early productions of the play is indicated by the legends that quickly accrued around them-that actual devils once appeared on the stage during a performance, "to the great amazement of both the actors and spectators," a sight that was said to have driven some spectators mad.

This popular textbook introduces prospective and practicing English teachers to current methods of teaching literature in middle and high school classrooms. It underscores the value of providing students with a range of different critical approaches and tools for interpreting texts and the need to organize literature instruction around topics and issues of interest to them. Throughout the textbook, readers are encouraged to raise and explore inquiry-based questions in response to authentic dilemmas and issues they face in the critical literature classroom. New in this edition, the text shows how these approaches to fostering responses to literature also work as rich tools to address the Common Core English Language Arts Standards. Each chapter is organized around specific questions that English educators often hear in working with pre-service teachers. Suggested pedagogical methods are modelled by inviting readers to interact with the book through critical-inquiry methods for responding to texts. Readers are engaged in considering authentic dilemmas and issues facing literature teachers through inquiry-based responses to authentic case narratives. A Companion Website [http://teachingliterature.pbworks.com] provides resources and enrichment activities, inviting teachers to consider important issues in the context of their current or future classrooms.

One Saturday morning at breakfast, Kaye Newton listened to her fourteen- year-old daughter declare that she would rather vacuum pretzel crumbs from the family minivan, than read a book for pleasure. Newton recognized that while her three children were competent readers, they chose not to read during their free time. Her kids, ages ten, eleven, and fourteen, and many of their friends spent their days snapchatting, texting, and playing "important" Xbox matches. Since Newton is a booklover, this absence of reading bothered her. Research shows that reading is fundamental for success in school and the workplace, and it's also life-enhancing. But could a regular parent, who is not a teacher or librarian, lead her screen-loving kids to peruse books for pleasure? And could adolescents who claim "I'm just not a reader" as they settle in front of their favorite Netflix series, be transformed into readers? Could this metamorphizes possibly be enjoyable? The answer is Yes! After spending over a year testing reading advice, Newton shares what really works to get kids to read for fun. She includes practical guidance, lists of books that hook teens and preteens, and even describes how to make the required reading for school more enjoyable. A blend of memoir, research, and experimentation, How to get your Screen-Loving Kids to Read a Book for Pleasure enables parents, grandparents, and caregivers to successfully promote reading for fun.

Shakespeare Performance Studies

Author: W. B. Worthen

Publisher: Cambridge University Press

ISBN: 1139993070

Category: Literary Criticism

Page: N.A

Taking a 'performance studies' perspective on Shakespearean theatre, W. B. Worthen argues that the theatrical event represents less an inquiry into the presumed meanings of the text than an effort to frame performance as a vehicle of cultural critique. Using contemporary performances as test cases, Worthen explores the interfaces between the origins of Shakespeare's writing as literature and as theatre, the modes of engagement with Shakespeare's plays for readers and spectators, and the function of changing performance technologies on our knowledge of Shakespeare. This book not only provides the material for performance analysis, but places important contemporary Shakespeare productions in dialogue with three influential areas of critical discourse: texts and authorship, the function of character in cognitive theatre studies, and the representation of theatre and performing in the digital humanities. This book will be vital reading for scholars and advanced students of Shakespeare and of Performance Studies.
