Led by a teacher/artist from Shakespeare’s Globe in London, these three-hour workshops share dynamic, active practices for engaging student’s curiosity, empathy and intuition in exploring dense text types – while sharing tools to engage critical analysis, remove barriers to challenging texts, build new language skills, increase comprehension, engage ethical reasoning and heighten aesthetic sensibility.
