Shakespeare Teaches Teachers

Teacher: Alexandra Hyman, English

School: Urban Assembly School for Law & Justice

Project Goal(s): Four teachers will attend BAM’s Shakespeare Teaches Teachers professional development sessions relating to performance in the classroom, and then we will bring 136 students to see a live screening of Julie Taymor’s A Midsummer Night’s Dream.


The teaching artists will provide professional development and instruction regarding Shakespeare performance techniques in the classroom. Teachers will be equipped to turnkey those activities to the students, and will then participate in a performance themselves in the culminating event on 4/1/17. The teaching artists’ PD sessions will also provide guided curricula for Romeo and Juliet and A Midsummer Night’s Dream.

ETA funds were used for the program fees.
