Students will learn about Shakespeare and his great works through a fun interactive party. The party itinerary (loosely): Top of the hour— Guests arrival, announcement, and introduction. :05 — Sharing of gifts (guests present birthday cards made in preparation for class) :15 — Shakespeare’s writings were meant to be performed. A lesson and practice session on a technique to memorize Shakespeare based upon Ken Ludwig’s “How to Teach Your Children Shakespeare” :25 — Shakespeare Word Bingo....
Students will take away a deeper appreciation and a new or renewed sense of joy about Shakespeare as well as tips on memorization.
As a college student at Oxford University, I had the amazing experience of visiting the Globe Theatre and studying its architecture. My love of Shakespeare’s work runs deep. My family and I have visited the Folger Shakespeare Library in Washington, DC, frequently, and my daughter has studied Shakespeare through intensive classes at the Shakespeare Theatre Company and received one-on-one instruction on memorization from Ken Ludwig himself.
To prepare a birthday card for Shakespeare. Once enrolled, students will receive an invitation to the virtual party with instructions.
Pen/pencil/markers and paper. Building bricks, clay or paper or other items on hand may be used to make a model cake. Also, students may bring a glass of water, juice, or tea, and their own refreshments.
Learners will not need to use any apps or websites beyond the standard Outschool tools.
45 minutes per week in class, and an estimated 0 - 1 hours per week outside of class.
Kenneth Ludwig’s “How to Teach Your Children Shakespeare” will be discussed as well as Sonnet 18, “A Midsummer Night’s Dream”, and a MacBeth parody.
