"I would love to... challenge my students to ask these difficult questions in class with regard to how they view themselves and how they view the world around them.”
Kristyn Rosen, a teacher at North Plainfield High School in North Plainfield, NJ, is ready to take Shakespeare to the next level with her students and teach plays like The Merchant of Venice and Othello to address difficult cultural questions with them. Shakespeare's plays allow us to explore advanced issues. What further plays would you consider using to brook these discussions?
