This class will explore the majority of Shakespeare's plays with an emphasis on understanding Shakespeare's use of language. Through the villains, heroes, and supernatural in these plays we'll make connections to characters and concepts we see today. Each week we will look at a different play, rotating between comedies, tragedies, and histories. While each week may build on concepts previously discussed the focus of each class session will be on a separate play. The top of class will...
Students will gain an overview of select plays in Shakespeare's Canon and develop an understanding and appreciation for Shakespeare's language. Other skills: public speaking, text interpretation and analysis, cold-reading of text, empathy, dramaturgy (play structure, language, themes)
I am a Philadelphia-based theatre artist with experience teaching acting, improv, playwriting, directing, Shakespeare, and self-expression. In 2010 I graduated from Lehigh University with majors in Psychology, and Theatre, and a minor in Business. I completed the Midsummer in Oxford program through the British American Drama Academy in England in 2009 where I worked with industry professionals from across the world including Fiona Shaw (renounced Irish actor/director who you may recognize as Petunia Dursley in the Harry Potter franchise), and John Barton (British theatre maker who spend over 50 years with Royal Shakespeare Company). After graduating I moved to Philadelphia to begin my career as a theatre artist. I've appeared in productions across the area spanning from musicals to Shakespeare to original and devised work. For the past ten years I have been a teaching artist in the greater Philadelphia area in playwriting, improv, acting, scene study, and Shakespeare. My approach in the classroom is person forward and I aim to help all of my students find their creative spark. This is especially crucial now that learning is largely remote, students still have the need to be seen, heard, and feel that they belong. My own involvement in the arts helped me develop confidence, communication skills, and a strong sense of self - I would like to bring this gift to your learner!
students are invited to read play prior to class time, but this is completely optional
1 file available upon enrollmentLearners will need a notebook and pen, or a word document to take notes on. Class sessions may feature a presentation so attending on a larger screen (not a phone) would be preferable, but is not required. Teacher will provide links to any specific sections of text we are exploring.
Learners will not need to use any apps or websites beyond the standard Outschool tools.
1 hour 15 minutes per week in class, and maybe some time outside of class.
Many of Shakespeare's plays depict violence and adult situations, however we will not be exploring text that contains descriptions of explicit violence, sexuality, or adult language. If you have specific concerns please get in touch.
We will be using text primarily from MIT's online Shakespeare collection. Any isolated selections of text we are looking at in class will be shared during or before class.
