Text Alive! is a free, semester-long arts integration program that brings Shakespeare’s plays to life through a performance-based teaching strategy.
Over the course of a semester, students and teachers will develop their knowledge and understanding of Shakespeare through a series of workshops including Introduction to Shakespeare, Shakespeare’s World, Shakespeare’s Text and Page to Stage. In the latter portion of the semester, students apply their knowledge by designing and rehearsing a scene from one of Shakespeare’s plays.
Public school English and Theatre teachers for grades 9-12 in D.C., Maryland and Virginia are invited to apply.
