Shake Up Shakespeare



Wednesday, May 5, 4:00-5:00 PM EDT
Carol Ann Lloyd

Hosted by the ESU Central Pennsylvania Branch in collaboration with the Pennsylvania Department of Education. 

For more than 400 years, Shakespeare and his plays have been part of our lives. From the playhouses of the sixteenth century to the American Wild West, and from formal theatres to high school festivals, Shakespeare's stories have resonated around the world. This interactive program will invite attendees to participate in polls, chats, and discussions. We'll take a look at how Shakespeare created stories that raise questions about relationships that we are still trying to answer today. We'll explore the power of his language and how it has shaped and been shaped by experiences over hundreds of years. Finally, we'll look at ways Shakespeare's characters and his plays say "goodbye," considering how these final lines encourage us to continue our consideration of ideas and insights. Carol Ann Lloyd is a speaker and writer who shares English history and Shakespeare with a broad audience across the US and abroad.

 

To receive one Continuing Education credit hour, all participants must complete the entire program. Once you've attended the program, you will need to complete additional forms for Act 48 credit through CIU 10 that will be provided to you.
