Teaching Shakespeare Through Performance
July 12-30, 2019
Take your teaching of Shakespeare to another level. Go beyond the Bard's words on the page and discover Shakespeare in the context that brought his works to life. Our three-week summer course at Shakespeare's Globe is the best way to learn to teach Shakespeare. This invaluable experience will give you new perspectives that will elevate you as a teacher of Shakespeare.
This program is ideally suited for inquisitive, adventurous English Language Arts teachers willing to work outside their comfort zone. Although participants engage with Shakespeare's work as texts to be performed, not simply read, "Teaching Shakespeare Through Performance" is not an acting program. The course is delivered with the knowledge that ELA teachers may have training or experience with performance-based methods of teaching Shakespeare. Applicants must be currently working as classroom teachers.

Every year, the ESU provides nearly 50 scholarships for classroom teachers in their communities. ESU scholarships are for current classroom teachers attending our multi-week courses at Shakespeare's Globe, the University of Edinburgh, and the University of Oxford.
This course incorporates approximately 100 contact hours of professional development. To receive a certificate of attendance, teachers must "turnkey" their learning and lead a professional development seminar back in their school or district.
Deadline: TBD in Spring, 2019.
