Description

Class Experience

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!
There 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.
In addition to the Outschool classroom, this class uses:
55 minutes per week in class, and an estimated 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.
