Active Strategies with Shakespeare

This is an optional credit enrollment for registered participants of the UC Davis School of Education workshop.

Drawing from a different work each time offered, this workshop series will provide teachers a half-day of active strategies for teaching Shakespeare's themes and language. Participants will engage in lively action strategies designed by Shakespeare's Globe Learning Consultants to understand the universal truths in the play and provide access to themes relevant to contemporary students. Techniques focus on isolating key elements of text to look closely at language and then use a variety of scaffolding strategies to put participants into the context to reveal motives and a variety of interpretations of themes. Participants will practice these approaches and discuss applications for the teaching of both Shakespeare and other literature in this five-hour session.
