Hands On Learning with Shakespeare

Marymount Academy students (from left to right) Megan McIlveen, Nora Puro, Anna Vasak, Mandy Steele and Rain Thomas show off their "Romeo and Juliet" masks.

November 6, 2012 - Students in Marymount Academy teacher Allison Cameron’s grade 9 English class had a unique lesson on Shakespeare recently. In order for the students to become more engaged with this unit of study, Cameron had each of her students create a mask reflecting their book study on Romeo and Juliet. As part of this lesson, students brought in different sorts of crafts and decorations that would be used to create unique masks. “When you give students the opportunity for hands on learning, they are much more likely to connect to the lesson,” Cameron stated. “The students have fun and get to be totally creative, all the while they are really learning on a deeper level. It is a great way to engage the student and make the lessons come alive!”
