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.
