Fargo students have their own versions of Shakespeare
FARGO, N.D. - For Anna Pieri, William Shakespeare evokes a copper tree.
For Meena Tadros, the Elizabethan author's works are best captured in a satirical newspaper.
And for Maria Sauvageau, sketches from the Sistine Chapel add meaning to the Bard's poetry.
Teaching Shakespeare to high school students is never an easy task. Too often, students stumble over 'thee's' and 'o'ers' and puzzle over his poetic forms.
English teacher Judy Cooper says students are more afraid of Shakespeare than anything. 'They're intimidated by it,' she said."
