April 2021 I am now registered for the Teaching Shakespeare course through University of Colorado Boulder, the final course in the certificate program for Applied Shakespeare
I have be working towards goals on Shakespeare in Schools and Community spaces and when I found Applied Shakespeare program I looked and read about it and not only does it work with teachers and artists and people who love Shakespeare on goals that are in alignment with interpreting and performing and teaching the works of Shakespeare in schools and community spaces, which is what I have been working towards, it is also online, which is so convenient for continuing my life here at home. Here is the email that I was sent. First online class is Friday 1/17/2020.
Spring 2019 - Volunteer Teaching with Citizen Schools - Romeo and Juliet - Here is our class display for the reception after the WOW presentation. Students shared the chorus speech and one student performed the balcony monologue.
CITIZEN SCHOOLS THANK YOU for Volunteer Teaching 2018
I am now finding that Citizen Schools gave me a MAYORAL SERVICE AWARD for this past year's work
Shakespeare after school continues through Citizen Schools implementing Shakespeare in 10 afternoons leading to presenting a scene along with other after school presenters. Our class worked with the Citizen Schools teacher to focus students on the plot of Midsummer Nights Dream, then we worked through the text of the scene with the teens in the woods and students created thier own scene using thier own words. This week we share the scene, that was recorded and we will talk about how students came up with ideas from what is in Shakespeare's play and how he places the scene to thier own version.
A scene from 'Midsummer Nights Dream' was presented along with after school activities, and afterwards we had presentations. Thank you to Citizen Schools for our Shakespeare class and I will look forward to teaching in the fall through Citizen Schools.
This spring semester I am teaching a long term assignment high school and would like to share a little about the great experience that I have had. First - Here is the space. It's a very mobile stage and I chose to put the rake in front of the platform so that I could teach a little theater history in preparation for Midsummer Nights Dream.
