Each semester, the American Shakespeare Center devotes a seminar to the classroom applications of plays from our repertoire. Professor Ralph Alan Cohen, the ASC's education staff, and our troupe of professional actors provide teachers with a host of materials and techniques for bringing Shakespeare to life for their students. The play-specific seminars focus on making the plots, characters, words, and drama of Shakespeare's plays relevant and exciting in the classroom. We pay special attention to ways of undoing the "Shakes-fear" that so often prevents students from enjoying the plays. We also look at the connections between the plays and standard requirements for English, theatre, and history curricula.
