My Students

The immortal bard Shakespeare is alive and well in Texas! All the world's a stage, And all the men and women merely players; They have their exits and their entrances, And one man in his time plays many parts, His acts being seven ages. Please help me open the door to Shakespeare at CCV.

I teach at an elementary arts magnet school in the state of Texas.

The student population I work with is 63% economically disadvantaged. As a drama teacher, I want to expose them to classic Shakespearean literature. My desire for them is that they rise above their circumstances in life and experience the joy and fulfillment creative expression in the arts can bring to them.

My Project

In January 2011, we will embark on an adventure with a local Shakespearean company which will take our students into the 16th Century. The company will come and perform scenes from Romeo and Juliet and A Midsummer Night's Dream. The company uses a dual approach with two actors performing in the original language and two performing in modern language. We will be enlisting an artist in residence to come to our school and work with our students. Our students will perform an elementary version of a Midsummer Night's Dream or something similar. I am requesting 3 paper mache mask making kits. Students will create their own character masks to be used in a production of their play. Students will also be making their own costumes and set pieces for a well-rounded theater experience.

In this day and age, children are bombarded by visual images and sounds daily.

So often they are told what to think and their world is full of right and wrong answers. The value of personal creative expression cannot be overstated. Drama involves a student intellectually, physically, and emotionally. Of all the arts, it has the most profound affect on the whole child socially and verbally. Creative expression is not bound by right and wrong answers but emanates from the soul of the child.
