"How to Make Shakespeare Cool" Discussion
This discussion between DT+'s Educator Success Specialist Dr. Anna Bean and expert teachers Katie Weible and Brian Hinds introduces their lesson plans and learning objectives. Both videos are on making Shakespeare's language accessible to students through exercises, using sound and movement.
Brian focuses on a scene from Julius Caesar between Cassius and Brutus with his students, innovatively introducing staging and movement based on the dialogue. Katie's students work on realising the witches in Macbeth through her inventive use of sound effects, movement, and staging.
