Just a reminder:
A week from today, on Thursday, April 9, I’ll be delivering a presentation entitled “What’s the matter with Shakespeare? Words, words words…” at the monthly meeting of the Ventura County Reading Association.
I’ll be providing teachers with the tools they need to confidently introduce Shakespeare to their students. The centerpiece will be a scansion workshop and lesson (the plan for which will be one of the takeaways for the afternoon, so that they can replicate the lesson for their own students), focusing on how character and action are revealed in the rhythm of the poetic line in passages from both Romeo and Juliet and Hamlet.
Know a Ventura County teacher (high school, middle school, late elementary school, junior high school, home school)? Let them know and have them tell a friend. They might even walk away with a autographed book (not by me) as a door prize!
Thursday, April 9, from 4:30 pm to 6:00 pm at the Ventura County Foundation Building, 4001 Mission Oaks Blvd., Camarillo.
