    Tayler's Bio:
    My name is Tayler and I was an English major/biology minor at the College of St. Scholastica! I have lived in Duluth all of my life so I know all the best local restaurants and hiking trails. On campus, I was involved with The Cable, Bella Voce, the Northstar Reports, the McNair Scholars Program, Student Support Services, and the English & Arts Club. Off campus, I volunteered with Mentor Duluth and enjoy throwing theme parties with friends and family.

Acting in Class


Last week for my British Literature I course, our assignment was to act out a scene from Shakespeare’s The Tempest in two different ways.¬†I found this assignment especially relevant to my education as I am also currently in an Honors Shakespeare class. My favorite thing about this assignment was how hands-on everyone was. We weren’t just reading the lines aloud, there was blocking, accents, and props. Everyone gave acting their best attempt and everyone seemed to be having a blast. My group acted out Act II, Scene i where a group of royalty has just washed ashore after a shipwreck. For the first go-round, we chose to act out the scene as if everyone was in distress. The lords bicker amongst each other and grow angry with the good-natures Gonzalo who attempts to look at the bright side. In the second version, we focused more on the Shakespearean language which was filled with puns and play-on-words. For this reason, we played our characters with lighter tones. The anger towards Gonzalo changed to lighthearted banter and the characters are all-together more optimistic about their situation. It was a blast being our own directors, giving acting a shot, and getting more involved in the reading than writing an essay.
