SHAKESPEARE AND "TEN THINGS I HATE ABOUT YOU"

No mês de outubro postei algumas fotos da capacitação que participei na cidade de Altônia...algum...muito tempo depois, cumprindo minha promessa vou postar as sequências didáticas que trabalhamos lá e que eu já desenvolvi com meus alunos e deu suuuuuuuper certo. Estas atividades foram desenvolvidas para facilitar e enriquecer o trabalho com o Livro Didático Público - LEM - Inglês, aqui do Paraná (Disponível no portal dia-a-dia Educação). São várias aulas, hein...VAMOS LÁ... Iniciar a aula questionando aos alunos se eles já ouviram falar em William Shakespeare? Se conhecem alguma obra dele? Em seguida, passar o vídeo: "O Menestrel - Um dia Você Aprende - Shaeskepeare", pedindo que os alunos prestem atenção na maneira como o poema é declamado, no modo de falar, nos gestos, etc...


Apresentar uma rápida biografia do poeta em estudo, apresentando as características principais deste gênero textual.

William Shakespeare was one of the greatest poets and playwrights of all times. He was born in April, 1564, in a city called Stratford-upon-Avon, in England. He was the son of Mary and John Shakespeare. William was their third child and their first male baby. He was educated mainly at The New King’s School. As an adult, he married Anne and had three children. Later he moved to London. In London, Shakespeare started his successful career as a playwright and a poet. Around the year of 1592, Shakespeare was already famous for his drama work. By this period, he wrote “The Comedy of Errors” and “The Taming of the Shrew”. Later, he wrote “Titus Andronicus”, “Richard II”, “King John” and “Love’s Labour’s Lost”. His plays were shown at the famous Globe Theatre. Probably between 1599 and 1601 Shakespeare wrote “Hamlet” and after that he also wrote great stories. His style changed radically from comedy to tragedy. Shakespeare ended his career working with the new writer from “The King´s Men”, John Fletcher. According to some biographers, he wrote his three final plays with John. Other of his famous plays are “Macbeth”, written in the honor of a Scottish king; “King Lear”, a play about ingratitude; “The Tempest”, with a lyrical taste; “Romeo and Juliet”, a remarkable tragedy; and “The Taming of the Shrew”, presented as “a play inside a play”. Shakespeare became a rich man and got back to his hometown and died. Maybe because of a fever. It happened in 1616. The famous writer Alexandre Dumas stated: “After God, it was Shakespeare who created the most”. (Além das questões abaixo, podemos explorar: palavras transparentes, pronomes pessoais, passado dos verbos - lista dos verbos irregulares, etc...) - Answer the following questions in English: a. Where was Shakespeare from? Where did he start his carrer? b. Shakespeare was a playwright and a poet. Define “playwright” (look the word up in a dictionary). c. Which of Shakespeare’s plays cited in the text above is familiar to you? Can you write a few words about this play? d. What’s Dumas’ opinion about Shakespeare? Do you agree with him? Why? - Apresentar o vídeo com o trecho do filme em que Julia Stiles declama o poema de Shakespeare "Ten Things I Hate About You" (Baseado no livro "A Megera Domada")


(Conversar com os alunos, tentando saber o que eles consiguiram entender do poema e deixar que eles façam seus comentários sobre o mesmo. Se for necessário - com certeza será - passe o vídeo outras vezes, só então entregue o poema impresso)
“I hate the way you talk to me. And the way you cut your hair. I hate the way you drive my car. I hate it when you stare I hate your big dumb combat boots. And the way you read my mind. I hate you so much it makes me sick it even makes me rhyme. I hate the way you're always right. I hate it when you lie. I hate it when you make me laugh even worse when you make me cry. I hate it that you're not around. And the fact that you didnt call. But mostly I hate the way I don't hate you not even close, not even a little bit, not any at all.” E olha que legal o mesmo poema, cantado!!!


- Para que os alunos entendam melhor o contexto em que o poema está inserido, vamos fazer uma breve análise da sinopse do fime. (Apresentar as características deste gênero textual)
THE FILM
The film “10 Things I Hate About You” takes place in a modern high school in the U.S. Its plot is based on Shakespeare’s play: there are these two sisters whose father is a very strict man. He has a rule: the youngest sister will only be able to have a date when her older sister does first. The problem is that the sister is a ferocious girl. She hates the idea of having boyfriends and she prefers to study and read. Only a very brave man could tame this ‘shrew’... Everything happens in an everyday teenager environment, which includes peer pressure, tough teachers, school popularity and other issues. While watching the film, we can realize that a lot of characters’ names come from the original Shakespeare’s play. The oldest sister’s name is Kat, which is a reference to Katherina, the main character of “The Taming of the Shrew”. Her surname is Stratford, which is also a reference to Stratfordupon-Avon, the city where Shakespeare himself was born. Patrick’s surname, Verona, is the name of Petruchio’s hometown. Patrick is the brave guy that faces Kat’s toughness, and his name reminds the name of Shakespeare’s original, Petruchio. The name of the school in the film is “Padua”, the city where the original play takes place. At a certain point of the film, one of the characters says a line of Shakespeare’s 56 sonnet: “Sweet love, renew thy force”. Another character, Cameron, says: “I burn, I pine, I perish”, an original line from “The Taming of the Shrew”. Despite these references and others you’ll notice, the film is made for modern teenagers and the language used in it is very informal. Let’s watch it now?

* SEMPRE CHAMANDO A ATENÇÃO DOS ALUNOS PARA AS PALAVRAS TRANSPARENTES.

- Answer the following questions in English or in Portuguese:
1. What are the references showed in the film “10 Things I Hate About You”, about Shakespeare and his writings? (Try to watch some parts of the film again to confirm these references).
2. Look up in dictionaries and give the meaning of the original Shakespeare’s title “The Taming of the Shrew” in Portuguese.
3. Why hasn’t the title of the play received a literal translation in Brazil? Explain it. Why does it happen to other films’ and plays’ titles?
4. Do you know any other films’ or plays’ titles that were adapted (not literally translated)? Give 10 examples of English titled films and the names they received in Brazil (you can research in a rental store).
5. What’s your opinion about Kat’s father behavior? Is it too repressive? Can you compare it to real life parent’s behavior? Do they act like that sometimes? In your opinion, why does it happen?

FILM REVIEWS
Lindsay Burrell 05/03/01
As an English student, I expected this film to fail miserably in an attempt to recreate the humor and the magic in Shakespeare original. However, I believe that the director managed to retain the ideas and the punch that the Master wrote. Having seen the film, I went out the second it was released on video and purchase a copy. My veredict? 11/10-just can’t get higher. Plus, Heath Ledger-mmm...

Archer 05/24/01
Ten things I hate about this movie: it wasn’t funny, inventive, smart, witty, dramatic, dazzling, spectacular, powerful. It didn’t mean anything to me as a teen, and Shakespeare would roll over in his grave if he knew what kind of movies were made from his plays.

Andrei 10/03/01
It was a great movie showing the hopes and the beliefs of some teenagers and I do believe that it deserves a special place in our movie culture.

4. What would Shakespeare’s reaction be to this film according to the second review? Why?

a) A review about the film (a short text).

Can't Take My Eyes Off Of You (Frankie Valli)
You're just too good to be true
can't take my eyes off of you
You'd be like heaven to touch
I wanna hold you so much
At long last love has arrived
and I thank God I'm alive
You're just too good to be true
can't take my eyes off of you

Pardon the way that I stare,
there's nothing else to compare
The sight of you leaves me weak
there are no words left to speak
But if you feel like I feel,
please let me know that it's real
You're just too good to be true,
can't take my eyes off of you

I love you baby and if it's quite all right,
I need you baby to warm the lonely nightsI love you baby trust in me when I say
Oh pretty baby don't bring me down I prayOh pretty baby now that I found you, stay
And let me love you baby, let me love you

(No blog tem um post mais antigo com várias ideias de como trabalhar com música)

- No final pedi que montassem slides do poema, da música; apresentação da música (cantar); declamar o poema; declamar a música (como se fosse poema)...

Foi um trabalho bem gostoso, e apesar de utilizar o mesmo tema, não ficou cansativo, pois foi abordado de formas diferentes, com gêneros diferentes...
