Description

Class Experience

Students will come out of the class with a clearer understanding of the plot, characters and themes of Shakespeare's "A Midsummer Night's Dream."  
I have been working with Shakespeare and teenagers for over 2 decades, teaching and directing.  I have found that most teenagers are able to handle the subject matter in Shakespeare just fine (mostly due to the fact that these are "old stories" and far enough removed from their modern lives).  I am sensitive to these things, however and will do my utmost to keep descriptions PG.
No homework.  But, after class, I do encourage students to do any/all of the following:
1.  Read the play.
2.  Listen to an audio version of the play, while following along.
3.  See a production of the play, live.
4.  Watch a movie version of the play.
I will supply a PDF for students to print/keep after class, if they wish.
55 minutes per week in class, and maybe some time outside of class.
NOTE:  I believe it is important to study Shakespeare as (we think) he wrote it.  As such, I do not change the plot or characters for this age group.  While I do not go into depth about the "tricky issues," many Shakespeare plays do involve some sex/relationships, violence,  language (mostly in Elizabeth English though).
