12 December 2013

What is literary reading's value if it is not perceived to be relevant by those whose zones of proximal development we've been entrusted to nourish?

 

There are reasons why Shakespeare is still relevant. And, most English majors/English teachers have, over the trajectories of their lives come to know that Shakespeare is relevant. 

 

But, "relevance" only becomes relevant once the "Ah Ha"ppens. 

<<ASIDE: Okay, I don't know if "Ah Ha"ppens works. But I am stuck with a mind that comes up with stuff like that>>

 

How might these parallel versions of the classics be embraced as resources as we encourage students to "discover" the relevance of Shakespeare? 

 

If we teach Shakespeare (or any author) as if the goal was to deify the author rather than to encourage discovery of relevance then we may be missing the target more often than hitting the bullseye. 

 

There is an indescribable joy when we "discover for ourselves" the significance of the great themes. 

 

And there is great frustration when we "just don't get" what someone else is so excited about. 

 

Whether we acknowledge it when asked or conveyed indirectly via body language, the truth is that many of our students let us know that they are not really as engaged as we'd like to believe they are. The message we may or may not be aware of is...

 

"What's this old story got to do with anything I care about?"

 

or the more receptive...

"What's this old story got to do with anything I should care about?"

 

It's that "opportunity space" between "not caring yet" and "actually caring." 

 

These Hollywood adaptations may be just the bridge between the "why should I care?" and the personal realization that "I really ought to care" moment.

 

I'm convinced that we can not tell others to care, but we can create an opportunity for them to experience the discovery of something worth caring about that had not been cared about before. 

 

It's some sort of choreography, some sort of "designing the sequence of events," that make up a learning experience in which the student is the discoverer of relevance rather than the note taker who either does or doesn't really care about passing the test.

 

So when do we do our end zone dance?

 

When they send the message "I know this one!" or when they send the message "I Get it!"

 

"Ah Ha"ppiness Happens!
