F5-23 / Accessible Shakespeare: Othello (English)
This workshop for teachers will take an active and accessible approach to teaching Shakespeare in the classroom. Using a combination of theater games, movement exercises, and our natural human impulses, this workshop is intended to make Shakespeare more relatable, instinctual, and less intimidating for students. We will also use practical examples from his text, with specific regard to Othello, and discuss its themes and creative ways to explore the characters within this classic story. We will leave you with a set of tools to help build students‘ skills so that the material will feel fresh and the classroom motivated.
