Course Detail: CAA229 - Ultimate Shakespeare-ience (Grades 7-12)
Approximately 50% of the world's school children study Shakespeare. Learn to do it the fun way by putting it on the stage, where it is meant to be! Students will discover Shakespeare by using active approaches that unlock the text and enhance the story. Acting games based on the text will be used to help students physically connect with the language and characters of the plays. Students will use the same techniques that the professional actors of the Royal Shakespeare Company use when they begin to work on a Shakespeare production. Scenes and monologues from Shakespeare's plays will be used throughout, all approached with fun and energy that make the words jump off the page! This class is for those who love Shakespeare and those want to. Gloria Minnich has studied with the Royal Shakespeare Company over the course of several years and has learned techniques that help take the fear out of learning Shakespeare.
