Class Experience

Students will learn a brief introduction to who Shakespeare was including a brief history of his life and career. Students will have an opportunity to use critical thinking skills to assess any performances they've seen or share their own understanding of the difficulties of performing heightened language. Students will learn tips and tricks for acting out Shakespeare and common mistakes made by actors/how to avoid them. Students will learn the value of mastering Shakespearean acting as a performer and how it can help them take their acting to the next level.
I am a homeschool teacher of 12 years with a BFA in acting from Florida State University. I've been acting since middle school and my first Shakespearean role was in high school as Snout in Midsummer's Night Dream. I've also played multiple characters including Hero in Much Ado About Nothing, and Boyet in Love's Labour's Lost. My favorite role was playing Lady Macbeth back in 2016. Since then, I've been passionate about Shakespeare and bringing him to homeschoolers. I have taught workshops and classes to homeschoolers locally and I have performed in community and professional circles. I currently volunteer with a local Shakespeare for Homeschoolers group as an acting coach/consultant. I frequently judge our local English Speaking Union's Shakespeare Competition. 
I will supply text from Shakespeare to be read aloud. No materials are required.
In addition to the Outschool classroom, this class uses:
1 hour per week in class, and maybe some time outside of class.
Shakespeare does include some content that parents may find objectionable and has violence and romance, however for this class I will be pulling scenes and sections from his original text that are appropriate: Puck's speech "Give me your hands if we be friends"/Hamlet's famous "To be or not to be". Please let me know if you would like to see the text in advance to preview the language for your child.
Facts about Shakespeare taken from:

These links will not be shared during the class; however, parents are encouraged to use them to add to their student's learning.
