Lyceum 974 group students took part in the open lesson on William Shakespeare’s tragedy “Romeo and Juliet”, which was initiated by their Armenian teacher Armine Nersisyan.
Both the teacher and the counselor-pedagogue Qristine Mkhitaryan had done very detailed preparatory work.
In her introductory speech Qristine Mkhitaryan noticed that the open lesson would help not only to learn the tragedy thoroughly, but also have a discussion on the perception of love in general.
The counselor-pedagogue also introduced the guests of the day: Arevik Ashkharoyan, the director of the Armenian Literary Agency, and Hovhannes Tekgyozyan, a playwright and poet. The head of the Lyceum methodological centre, candidate of pedagogic sciences Tamar Aleqsanyan and some parents were also present at the open lesson. According to the scenario the students chose Shakespeare, who sat on the special chair for the playwright. The participants’ questions were addressed to him. Gevorg Esayan, who was confident enough in the role of Shakespeare, answered the “readers’” and “literary critics’” questions. There were various questions. The Lyceum students had a discussion on both Shakespeare’s works’ and biography details.
