Eight Sacramento New Technology High School students in teacher Christine Baker’s English class performed a scene from William Shakespeare’s “The Taming of the Shrew” at the Vanderhoef Studio Theater (part of UC Davis’ Mondavi Center) on November 19.

Baker was one of 12 area English and drama teachers who participated in the 2013 Globe Education Academy, a professional development opportunity provided by UC Davis, the Los Rios Community College District and Shakespeare’s Globe Theatre in London, England.

As the final segment of the academy, each of the 12 participating teachers worked with their students to perform a segment of “The Taming of the Shrew,” which were then performed in sequence.
