Shakespeare Kids Part II: Discover Four More Plays
Discover four more exciting plays by William Shakespeare with this fun, interactive course!
US Grade 5 - 8
This is a continuation course that covers four more of William Shakespeare's plays. Shakespeare is often considered on of the most important writers in the English language, and studying his works can be a great way for kids to learn classic literature, as well as theater arts. Several learners have completed part one of this series, where we study four famous plays from a theater arts perspective. In part one we review Shakespeare's comedies, tragedies and histories by studying A Midsummer...
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 students 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!
Homework OfferedThere is no assigned homework and it is not a requirement to read the plays or complete any assignments outside of class time. We will be focusing primarily on enjoying Shakespeare's works as a young reader and theater enthusiast. It is not a requirement to read any of the plays, but I do offer recommendations in class for various adaptations and version, such as graphic novels and modern translations.
1 - 2 hours per week outside of class
Macbeth and Hamlet both feature magic, murder and suicide. Macbeth is often considered to fit in the genre of "horror". Both plays feature supernatural characters, such as witches and ghosts. Our focus will not be on the scary or gory scenes, and none of the videos will be graphic. The plot of Twelfth Night includes some romance, cross-dressing and gender stereotypes that make for an educational discussion on gender roles in Elizabethan era theater. While I designed these classes to be as light-hearted and casual as possible, these elements are present and there is the possibility of fellow classmates having seen live productions or movie versions that are rated PG-13 in the US. I have online and in-person experience teaching these classes to children and do my best to present these subjects in an age-appropriate manner.
