Class Experience

Students will master a set of eight tools for analyzing, understanding, and performing Shakespeare's text. 
Homework will be independently applying the tools learned in class one to a short monologue, in preparation for class two. It should take between 30 and 60 minutes. 
Specific monologues and example materials will be provided. Students will be asked to annotate these materials - for some, it may be easier to print them at home and mark them with a pen or pencil, but materials can also be annotated digitally.
Learners will not need to use any apps or websites beyond the standard Outschool tools.
A final presentation of a short monologue will be the primary assessment.
1 hour 30 minutes per week in class, and an estimated 0 - 1 hours per week outside of class.
A great deal of Shakespeare's material falls into the PG-13 category - the plays contain mild violence, subtle references to sex, and some adult themes. However, nothing falls beyond what could be discussed in a standard high school English classroom. 
We will be primarily focusing on monologues, many of which are easily accessible on this website:

We will also be referencing Shakespeare's full plays, which can all be found here:
