Introducing Shakespeare (Victoria HUB)

Most high schools require the teaching of one Shakespearean work per year. Generally, kids get through it and are happy to move on. But, what if you were able to introduce it in such a way that the entire class fell in love with the language and the works? You, as the drama teacher, could be the one to turn this cannon of work into something the students were anxious to explore and present. This workshop will be filled with games, exercises and improvs that will make this one of the most fun units of your semester. The materials and exercises will be suitable for in-person and on-line learning.
