Description

Class Experience

Students will be able to comprehend the plot of Shakespeare's plays. Students will be able to analyze the setting, background influence, character growth, themes and motifs of Shakespeare's plays.
I am a licensed ELA teacher and have taught in U.S. public and charter schools for two years. I taught Shakespearean plays to students as young as 7th grade (the charter school I worked at started Shakespeare as part of the curriculum in 5th grade with a reading of and class performance of Julius Caesar). I love Shakespearean plays and even took a specific course on his works at Brigham Young University during my undergrad and even had to create an extra scene in the style of Shakespeare for one of his plays. 
Students will be required to incorporate what we have discussed into daily studying. 
Students will also be expected to read the play (or at least the determined portion of the play) before class.
Please bring pencils, paper, a copy of the assigned play, and any other school-work related items you need to study Shakespeare's plays.
In addition to the Outschool classroom, this class uses:
If you are interested in any assessment, let me know and we can discuss that. 
55 minutes per week in class, and an estimated 0 - 1 hours per week outside of class.
Depending on the topics and content the learner and their parents are wanting me to cover, we might utilize sources such as Nearpod, Kahoot, and the Smithsonian Institute websites. Shakespeare also does have some swearing and mature language in some of his plays, as well as sexual innuendos. (I don't plan on focusing on those aspects, but Shakespeare, by nature, is definitely PG-13).
If there is a preferred (or other teacher required) version of the Shakespearean play, we will use that version. Otherwise, let me know and we can decide together which version will best be suited based on age and comprehension level.
