Last week fifth grade students began exploring what was happening in 16th and 17th century Europe, and had a discussion on Shakespeare. This week they began a Shakespeare Workshop with Seattle Children’s Theatre Teaching Artist, and Westside School parent, Keni Cohen! During this interactive workshop students will explore the world of Shakespeare and theatre. Over the next three weeks Keni will be in the classroom working with students to prepare them to perform a scene from A Midsummer Night’s Dream. As students work on their performance, they will discuss themes from the play, characters and why Shakespeare’s work is still relevant today.
