Title: "Pygmalion" - Topics: Drama/England; World/England

“What do you mean that my language is improper?” Prior to My Fair Lady was Pygmalion. Fair Eliza’s struggles with English, which according to George Bernard Shaw “is not accessible even to Englishmen,” come alive in the 1938 film version of Shaw’s play. The film, which won the Academy Award for Best Adapted Screenplay, provides great discussion topics, from perceptions of social status based on accent, to gender equality.

I LOVE this website! It has been a huge help to me throughout my college education in becoming a teacher. I am now student teaching and I love being able to find and print out lesson plans I can use or tweak to accommodate my coursework requirements. I intend to keep using Lesson Planet throughout my career as a teacher.
