Welcome to the Shakespeare High
Faculty Lounge. These pages are dedicated to
helping you learn how to teach Shakespeare through performance. Some teachers are reluctant to
the idea of teaching through performance because they feel that they are not "drama
teachers" and/or they don't have enough time. It is my hope that this site will
- help alleviate some of those fears.
- give a sound educational philosophy to back teaching through
- provide strategies, resources, and lesson plans.
- be a gathering place for Shakespeare teachers!
In my school, the faculty lounge is a
central gathering place where teachers share lesson plans/teaching
ideas, tell stories/jokes, commiserate, and develop collegial camaraderie.
I hope that this virtual faculty lounge will give you the opportunity to
create a similar bond with like-minded teachers from around the
world. You may choose to begin the conversation by visiting the Staff
Lounge in the SH
Cafeteria to discuss your latest lessons with other teachers.
If you have a lesson plan that you would like to submit to this site,
please send it to firstname.lastname@example.org.
