2024 Speaker Topic


For the Love of Shakespeare

What is the optimal process for sparking enjoyment, understanding, and hunger for the human truths Shakespeare embeds in his plays? Methodology matters. You will gain a successful scaffolding to use at any academic level and across all age groups, making the process of teaching Shakespeare accessible and exciting rather than daunting and boring. This will ring true for your students especially. Success hinges on a four-step process strategically combining the visual with the literary. This specific process has been tested and measured over several years in a classroom of students as well as a mixed group of adults wanting to “learn how to enjoy and understand Shakespeare.
