Archive: Parental Pressure - Shakespeare's Portrait (May 16/2001)

More To Life

Everyone has had a report card he or she wanted to hide from their parents. How much pressure should we put on our kids to perform well in school? Does pressure actually work or will all your efforts backfire? Professor Bruce Ryan is an educational psychologist at the University of Guelph and he's here to take your calls. He Be or Not He Be? That really is the question this week as a portrait of a man purported to be William Shakespeare emerges in Ontario -- of all places. Though its owner remains a mystery, scholars around the world are itching to know. Is this the real William Shakespeare? Professor Alexander Leggatt is here to help us with that question and he'll take your calls. This show contains 2 field pieces. "Hamlet clip" by Virtual Classroom and "Hamlet Kids" by Sudio2. Show is phone-in based, and viewers can also participate via e-mail.
