Teacher Workshops

“I don’t think I’ve ever had a more productive Saturday!”
—Teacher, Al Raby High School (CPS), Chicago

TEACHER WORKSHOPS

We start with a play. We create a learning “laboratory” where teachers can roll up their sleeves, take in new ideas and try out some drama-based, Common Core-aligned teaching strategies. We add a Shakespeare scholar to the mix, giving us historical and contemporary perspectives. Then we invite the production’s director to join us and explore the art of interpretation, from page to stage.

All classroom teachers—including teachers-in-training—are invited to our free teacher workshops! Whether you’re teaching a particular play this year, thinking about it for the future, or simply wanting to learn more about approaching Shakespeare in the classroom, our workshops will immerse you in Shakespeare scholarship, interpretation, and pedagogy. And we can practically guarantee that the strategies you learn are applicable to any Shakespeare you may be teaching—and, for that matter, to other challenging texts!
