LM_NET e-mail seeking advice connect boys to Pride and Prejudice

Pride and Prejudice happens to be one of my favorite novels and the BBC version with Collin Firth is my favorite movie based on that novel.  So when I read an e-mail seeking Pride and Prejudice advice on how to engage male students in an AP English class, I had to send him a reply with a YouTube video link.  This skit is from a forensics tournament, but I think a creative educator could easily apply a little interpretive acting to any classroom and make it work.  It would probably even work in a library setting.  Take a bunch of teens place them in a book club, encourage them to act out what they read and what do you have?  A bunch of engaged kids!  Hey, include Pride and Prejudice and Zombies by Seth Grahame-Smith as a parody comparison and those students are bound to think literature is the fun.
