Teachers Summer school
We currently offer the following summer school for qualified teachers across the USA:
Teaching Shakespeare Through Performance
This three-week course is offered in partnership with the English Speaking Union of the United States. It gives middle and high school teachers from across the USA the chance to explore practical and play-filled approaches to teaching Shakespeare in the classroom.
During your time with us, you will take the following modules:
Teaching strategies for the contemporary classroom
You will get to work with our staff and practitioners to explore practical, active approaches to the teaching of Shakespeare. You are given the opportunity to reflect on your progress, and to consider how your learning at the Globe might inform your classroom practice.
Creating a production for the Globe Theatre
You are immersed in the life of a working theatre. As well as attending Globe productions, you meet and work with members of the Globe theatre company responsible for design, direction, movement, music, text and voice to explore how productions at the Globe are conceived and produced.
Producing a scene
You work in groups with directors on particular scenes from the Globe repertory. Wherever possible, these are presented on the landmark Globe stage.
