This is a crash course introduction to Shakespeare for kids! William Shakespeare's plays are considered some of the most important literary works in the English language, and studying his works can be a great way for kids to learn classic literature, as well as theater arts. I offer this class in a live format as well, but the flex class is a great alternative for any who have difficulty matching their schedule with mine. There is also a part III course with four more plays! During this...
Students will learn the basic overall plot of each play and discuss some details about the characters. Our main focus will be to approach the plays from a theater arts perspective, as an actor, director, backstage crew and audience.
I've been passionate about Shakespeare and the performing arts my entire life and love to share my love of these important literary works! I have taught this course to local and online students for years, and have had amazing feedback from children begging to read more Shakespeare together. I love to find ways to make Shakespeare exciting and fresh for young ones!
All Nearpod lessons typically take approximately 45-60 minutes to complete. Students are not required to read a copy or abridged version of the plays, though they will be given some recommendations and optional resources if they'd like to learn more.
- One printable template for designing a coat of arms (optional) - Your student may want access to YouTube and/or Spotify (or other music provider) to compile their Twelfth Night soundtrack.
No live meetings, and an estimated 0 - 1 hours per week outside of class.
Hamlet and Macbeth feature mild-moderate violence, murder and suicide (off-screen). We will be analyzing the characters and motives during this lesson, as well as viewing video clips (Hamlet's soliloquy and the trailer of a modern-day Macbeth retelling). The story of Henry V also contains scenes of war and battle, death and discussions of medieval weaponry. While I try to keep these classes as light-hearted and casual as possible, these elements are present. I have experience teaching these classes to children and present these historical subjects in an age-appropriate manner.
