My Students

My students work in a team-taught atmosphere and spend a ton of time together. We study Shakespeare (with costumes and props, the way it was meant to be read!), read a LOT of books, and are working to become excellent writers.

The students in my classroom see themselves on a learning continuum that always has endless space for improvement.

We work on projects and discussions together often, and we love to collaborate and share our talents. Some highlights of our year include reading Macbeth, writing research papers, and preparing self-exploration projects to culminate our year.

My Project

When we read Macbeth and Julius Caesar in my freshmen and sophomore literature classes, one of the most fun things we do is get up out of our seats and act the scenes.

Students have the opportunity to stage scenes themselves, and I have found that even the most reluctant reader will volunteer if it means he gets to hold a sword or she gets to wear a tiara.

Having some props goes a long way toward helping students make connections to what is going on, and helps us to build community in the classroom. Full class battles, throwing foam body parts into a cauldron, and seeing Lady Macbeth carrying her candle in a dark room will help inspire my students to look beyond the difficult language and enjoy Shakespeare the way it was meant to be enjoyed.
