We love to feature (and celebrate!) teachers and classrooms who are exploring the world of William Shakespeare. Please forward photos and/or articles about your classroom to firstname.lastname@example.org.
Congratulations to Nancy Price, 2nd and 3rd grade teacher from Oregon for completing a successful study of Shakespeare with her students. Nancy attended Marieka’s workshop at the International Storyline Conference in Portland, Oregon in 2009.
This is an article in which one of Marieka’s classes is featured. She worked with Misha Therrian, another 2nd/3rd grade teacher in Bend, Oregon to produce A Midsummer Night’s Dream. The cast and crew totaled at 53 students. Students were not only responsible for the telling of the story, but for the “designing” as well.
