Shakespeare for Teachers
The Acting Company is very proud to announce our Shakespeare for Teachers professional development workshops.... ideal for all teachers who like Shakespeare, love Shakespeare, have heard of Shakespeare or even have a good, healthy fear of Shakespeare! This year we added a Second Tier of the program for teachers who participated in the first round of workshops or already possessed a background in the works of William Shakespeare. Our workshops will be held in Manhattan from September through May. (Shakespeare for Teachers is also available to come directly to your school.)
A Resource Guide will provide classroom teachers with lessons and reproducibles to enhance the theatre-going experience. Pre- and Post-performance activities will help the students focus on both the literary and emotional impact of the piece. Role-playing, text analysis, writing-in-role and other drama-based techniques found in the guide will enhance the teachers' repertoire of exercises and will give students new approaches to literature.
