Welcome, all Shakespeare fans! In this class, we will be reading and discussing one of Shakespeare's most whimsical plays "The Tempest". This class is intended as a deep dive into this play, with students interpreting language in historical contexts, analyzing characters, and identifying themes present in the play. Each week, we will go over about one Act of the play (five total), with students reading their assigned parts. Parts will be randomly assigned to students at the beginning of each...
Students will be able to understand the language used in "The Tempest", read Shakespeare confidently, and analyze the themes, plots, and characters of this play.
I have taught theatre for several years, and have acted in Shakespeare productions. In college, I took acting courses, and have since continued to take theatre courses in my free time post-graduation.
Students will need a copy of "The Tempest". I recommend the No Fear Shakespeare version, but students are welcome to use any version they like. You can find a free copy online through Google.
Learners will not need to use any apps or websites beyond the standard Outschool tools.
Students will be informally assessed through their reading fluency and answers to questions posed in class.
50 minutes per week in class, and maybe some time outside of class.
"The Tempest" includes antiquated ideas of honor, antiquated ideas of women's roles in society, scenes of violence, suggestive language, religious references, alcoholism, dark magic, murder, and minor profanity. We will be discussing these themes in historical contexts, as well as feminism and LGBTQ+ themes theorized to be in this play by scholars. It is up to parents to decide if their student is at the maturity level needed for this class.
Students should have a copy of the play. I do not require students to take notes, but I highly recommend it. If you choose to take notes, it may be in any format you like, digital or physical.
