An overarching activities bundle that can be used alongside the reading of Pygmalion. This would be most effective if used while reading Pygmalion IN-CLASS versus at home. Includes:
Recommendations on how to teach with this:
Start with Pre-Reading Background Stations with overarching class discussion at the end. Start reading Pygmalion in class (stop and discuss throughout reading). Every few days (particularly after a scene that emphasizes a specific character), spend time in class working on character analysis handouts (can be done at home as well), at the end after reading - do a body biography activity on Eliza. Read Ovid's Pygmalion Myth in class and discuss thematic ideas and details noticed. My Fair Lady can be played throughout every other act/scene to break up reading days OR at the very end after reading (it is a LONG musical - it takes me at least three class periods, and I have one hour classes).
