Shakespeare Set Free

Using activities designed by the Folger Shakespeare Library in Washington, D.C., students in Mr. Mavor's English I Honors classes used choral and pantomime skills to "perform" the prologue of Act 2 of Romeo and Juliet. These short performances called upon the students to read and analyze closely the text to determine the appropriate tempo, vocal emphasis, and facial expressions and body language. The Folger Library encourages performance activities as the best way for Shakespeare's language to come alive, to be "set free," for students and provides various instructional activities to teachers to help them reach this goal.
