Act Two: "Ghosts in
the Classroom: Memory and Pedagogy"
KEITH: Paul will "raise" some of the ghosts that haunt his teaching,
especially his own teachers who have shaped his pedagogy.
PAUL: The classroom, like the theatre, is always an already haunted
space, where the past returns without necessarily being summoned.
Theatres are haunted by past performances and past productions, which
accumulate in the collective experience of audiences; in our
classrooms, our own memories rewind and replay the dramas of past
classes and interactions with people who are no longer in the present
tense of our lives.
