Engage your students with the wonders of the Bard, in the setting of a National Historic Site, under the guidance of professional actors.
Few would argue that Shakespeare has an important place in the school curriculum. What his plays have to teach us about human nature and the power of language is unquestioned. However, his work poses a real challenge to students – and educators – because it is some of the most difficult text they will encounter. Join the Greater Victoria Shakespeare Festival as they bring the words off the page and offer students Grades 7-12 strategies to understand and appreciate the playwright’s language and themes. Students will connect to these classic works from a modern perspective, discover why they have remained relevant for more than 400 years, and experience the power of Shakespeare through active participation and performance using dynamic, language-based methods that are accessible, enlightening and fun!
The program is appropriate for English, Drama and Humanities classes.
