For Educators

 Interested in having Shakespeare on the Sound in your classroom this year?

Shakespeare on the Sound provides educational programming for students of all ages that is fun, interactive, and inspiring. Our number-one goal is to give students ownership over Shakespeare’s language.

We want to work with you to create a workshop that is specifically tailored to your classroom, or allow you to choose from one of our already established programs. Take a look at our Workshops and Tours pages for more information on our established educational programming.

To bring Shakespeare on the Sound into your school, please contact Claire Kelly at claire@shakespeareonthesound.org or call our office at (203) 299-1300

In addition, we offer workshops for educators on bringing Shakespeare and theater into the classroom. Our teaching artists and scholars are readily available to help you write curriculum and lesson plans that make your classes as fun and interactive as possible.

Teacher’s Workshop for Educators of All Grades

This is an organized workshop for teachers hoping to utilize more theater and Shakespeare in their classrooms. Our approach is to support teachers in forming an interactive classroom in which control is given to the students.

In this workshop, one of our teaching artists instructs teachers on simple educational theater pedagogy, incorporating techniques from theater of the oppressed, Forum Theater, Image Theater, and Teacher-in-Role. Meanwhile, the Director of Education helps teachers effectively organize both Shakespearean and English lesson plans, and also points to some rewarding, thought-provoking moments that may arise out of a required text.

Our teaching artists and scholars are readily available to help you write curriculum and lesson plans, making your classes as fun and interactive as possible.
