Teacher's Manual

1. Didactic and Methodical Considerations

The linear, chronological progression of events as well as the lucid organization of the drama’s subject matter in two acts and nine scenes give the teacher the chance to arrange the study of the play in class into thematic units. As a rule, each unit is introduced by a succinct interpretation or by introductory information that will offer a more profound insight into those specific aspects dealt with in the respective unit.
The "Teaching Suggestions" which follow each interpretation or introductory information provide a variety of different teaching and learning methods such as pair/group work and individual assignments, blackboard sketches or diagrams, stimuli for discussion in class, research work on the internet, and finally a number of homework assignments. ...
However, they are meant merely as guidelines, for the decision as to which priorities are to be set, or how many lessons are needed for each unit, depends on the abilities and interests of the students and is therefore ultimately left to the teacher him-or herself.
