Shakespeare Teachers' Workshop

An intensive two-week summer program followed by weekend workshops in fall and spring on The Winter's Tale, Othello, and Much Ado About Nothing for sixteen New York City public and private school teachers in grades 5-12.

Theatre for a New Audience is implementing a pilot program – the Shakespeare Teachers’ Workshop – an intensive professional development program focusing on Shakespeare, consisting of a two-week summer seminar and two one-day weekend workshops in the fall and spring, developed for public and private school teachers in the New York City area. Led by Columbia University professors David Scott Kastan and James S. Shapiro, the workshop will provide 16 teachers with advanced skills to identify and understand the language, themes and context of Shakespearean plays. In the first year of the program, participants will study The Winter’s Tale (a romance), Othello (a tragedy), and Much Ado About Nothing (a comedy).
