Subject:      	Useful Journals
Another useful journal:
Studies in Medieval and Renaissance Teaching
The Spring 1990 issue has an article by Thomas J. Derrick, "New
Approaches from the Folger Shakespeare Library."  It's a review of the
Vineyard Video cassette documenting the kinds of things Peggy O'Brien
has been doing with teachers over the past decade.  Immediately
following Derrick's review is a list of books and articles on
Shakespearean teaching.  The Fall 1990 issue has two articles that I've
incorporated into my own planning for the coming semester: Cynthia
Evans, "Can an 'Old, Dead Classic' Be Revived?" (on ways of using
student responses to regenerate interest in Dante), and Elizabeth
Girsch, "Doing Away with Stereotypes: Attitudes Towards 'Otherness' in
Anglo-Saxon Communities."  As with SHAKSPER, this journal seems to put me
in touch with the zannies who dance towards classroom engagement rather
than fly from it.  The editorial page says US subscriptions are $10,
others $15, and manuscript contributions should be in the MLA style.
Both would go to Judy G. Hample, Managing Editor, SMART, College of Arts
and Sciences, Stalker Hall 213, Indiana State University, Terre Haute,
Indiana 47809.  Phone 812-237-2788.  (No E-mail address!)  By the way,
I've learned recently that common practice in Engineering School classes
at CCNY establishes campus E-mail nets among the members of any class.
Students can send stuff to one another individually, sign up onto
bulletin boards, communicate in small-groups.  I'm signing up my Women's
Literature class, opening the podium for all voices, letting more thn single
pairs of eyes see the responses to student's writings . . . Oh brave new
e-world. . .    (Now someone plese tell me how to do it right the first time.)
                                            	Yours cordially,
