Seminar paper from the year 2010 in the subject English - Pedagogy, Didactics, Literature Studies, printed single-sided, grade: 1,15, University of Erfurt (Philosophische Fakultät - Fachbereich Anglistik), course: Speaking and Storytelling in the Primary Classroom, language: English, abstract: 'Then out rose ... A TRULY MAGNIFICENT BROOM! With seats for the witch and the cat and the dog, A nest for the bird and a shower for the frog. 'Yes!' cried the witch, and they all clambered on. The witch tapped the broomstick and whoosh! they were gone.'(DONALDSON, SCHEFFLER, 2002)At the end of 'Room on the broom', the characters can finally enjoy the magic night. Before, they have to go through scavenger hunt-like and nerve-wrecking adventures. The book, which was written by Julia Donaldson and illustrated by Axel Scheffler, has been translated into 21 different languages so far. The author and the illustrator have already worked together on several successful children's books. 'The Gruffalo' is their most known piece and was probably the breakthrough for the two artists. (DONALDSON, a, b)Julia Donaldson, born in 1948, already invented stories as a child. She studied Drama and French and began her carrier as a writer for songs for children's television. When her song 'A squash and a squeeze' was turned into a book, illustrated by Axel Scheffler, she decided to write professionally plays and books for children. Up to now, she has written 154 books, partly for retail sales and partly for school purposes. (DONALDSON, a) The German Axel Scheffler, now living in London, was born in 1957 and studied Arts History as well as Graphic Arts. At the beginning of his career as illustrator, he worked for magazines and advertising agencies. Today, he mainly illustrates children's books. (SPRECKELSEN, 2008)This book report provides first some aspects which have to be taken into consideration when choosing 'Room on the Broom' for the classroom, such as the storyline, the values expressed in the book, its culture specific content, the language and an analysis of the illustrations. Secondly, some ideas for integrating the book into the English foreign language education are given. As the language applied in this book is rather challenging these considerations and implications on teaching refer to the proficiency level of a fourth grade in a German primary school.

Seminar paper from the year 2010 in the subject English Language and Literature Studies - Literature, grade: 1,0, University of Erfurt (Philosophische Fakultät), course: Shakespearean Comedy, language: English, abstract: The 'dream' in 'A Midsummer Night's Dream' implies a world of imagination, illusion and unconsciousness. In addition, the tradition and the popular beliefs of the midsummer festivals describe a time of unleashed natural forces (BOOCK, 1981: 70). The audience of the play indeed witnesses magical incidents in the fairies' forest, where the fairy king and queen, Oberon and Titania, rule over the natural processes. Human beings seem to behave irrationally under the spell of these fairies and in the surrounding of this magic forest (SHAKESPEARE, 1980: II - IV). However, in contrast, the city of Athens is dominated by the rational Theseus, duke of Athens, who only believes in what cool reason is able to produce and to understand (SHAKESPEARE, 1980: V, i, 2 - 22). The contrast of imagination and reason represents one of the major oppositional pairs of themes of 'A Midsummer Night's Dream' (KERRIGAN, 1998: 20ff). It becomes indirectly clear through the opposing worlds of forest and city and the ongoing actions in these two places. Furthermore, in the last scene of the play, the audience experiences directly a controversy between Theseus and his wife, Hippolyta, concerning the truth of the story about the incidents in the forest happened to the young Athenians Hermia, Helena, Lysander and Demetrius. Consequently, it is also a controversy about the value of imagination and reason (SHAKESPEARE, 1980: V, i, 1 - 27). Moreover, questions of imagination are brought up on another level. The play within the play of 'Pyramus and Thisbe', which is rehearsed by craftsmen throughout the story and performed at the wedding ceremony in the last scene, offers an increase of imaginative perspectives. Its content not only mirrors the main plot, but it also emphasises the role auf the audience in the imaginative process (DENT, 1964: 127 and PFISTER, 2000: 408 and WILLSON, 1981: 88 and WILLSON, 1974: 102ff and ZIPFEL, 2007: 212). These aspects will be discussed further in this research paper. As the title suggests, the focus is on the very last scene of the play. Nevertheless, it is also necessary to establish connections to other parts of 'A Midsummer Night's Dream', because no scene can be examined in an isolated form. Especially in the case of the last scene, the reflection of the main actions by the play within the play results in references to several plot lines.
