"Team teaching is the most suc-
cessful aspect of the new format
for English 123," Prof. Hubert M.
English of the English department
said last week.
Twenty-eight sections are parti-
cipating in the revamped program,
which divides the semester into
The first session of each unit is
a lecture for the entire group,
with a rhetorical principle or idea
discussed in regard to a previous-
ly assigned essay.
Each of the seven lecturers for
the course meets with four of the
sections, two at a time, on the
second class day. He works with
the material from the lecture unit.
"This method keeps lecturers in
contact with the individuals in
his course, whereas usually a lec-

turer has little reaction from his
students," Prof. English noted.
In the remaining four sessions
of the unit, each instructor meets
separately with his section so that
previous papers and present work
may be discussed and criticized.
Five writing conferences are
planned for the semester, so that
each student can receive private
attention from his instructor.
"The two main purposes of the
program are to make the teaching
fellows' induction into the course
as smooth as possible and to al-
low the freshman students to get
experienced instruction," Prof.
After a teaching fellow has had
a year of experience in the team
teaching program, he is given an
independent section which will
meet three times a week according
to the traditional format of Eng-

Last year the English depart-

lish 123 and 12 sections of English

A fetching and accomplished
production of Shakespeare 's
'Much Ado About Nothing
opened the Fall Festival of the
University of Michigan's Asso-
ciation of Producing Artists
Thursday in Trueblood AAditor-
ium, Ann Arbor.
A strikig Spanish courtyard
set with clean lines provided a
flexible area for working out
the twin romances of Beatrice
with Benedick and Hero with
Richard Baldridge's direction
provided a deliberate pace that
resulted in extreme clarity of
expression and action.
It also decked out the play
with a generous amount of
stage business to point up the
character relationships and ex-
tract something close to the ut-
most of comic possibilities.

IN THE leading role of
Beatrice the beautiful man-
hater was Nancy Marchand,
well remembered for her crea-
tion of top feminine role in the
original television presentation
She made of Beatrice a
woman of crisp wit and arch
manner, avoiding the coy over-
playing which has frequently
marred the rendition of this
role in less capable hands.
Opposite her as Benedick was
