Still mining the comments from Siobahn Curious’ Classroom as Microcosm blog post “How Do Games Help Us Learn?”
Samuel Wood said:
One which I have used when teaching Shakespeareâ€™s sonnets is to take them back to their early schooling and actually draw the woman as described in many sonnets and then turn to Shakespeareâ€™s Nothing Like the Sun. This gets students thinking about the preposterousness of much imagery, clichÃ© and metaphor as well as ideas of love and poetry.
And Siobahn replied:
I often think I should get students to draw more in my classes. One teacher I know breaks the class into 14 groups and then has each group create an image for one line of a sonnet â€“ then they post the pictures up in order and reconstruct the sonnet together. I always thought that sounded like a lot of fun.
