Lord, What Fools these Mortals Be!

The 8th grade has begun its exciting ascent into the fascinating world of William Shakespeare. To kick off the unit, Mr. Jacobsen's and Ms. Duffy's classes combined in the auditorium for two days. The first day focused on Shakespeare's legacy and how he has influenced modern rap and hip-hop music. The second day gave students insight to the layout of a theater, stage directions, and how to move as an actor/actress. In class, students will be reading, analyzing, discussing, and performing Shakespeare's classic A Midsummer Night's Dream. And finally, to cap off the excitement, the 8th graders will get to watch the play performed by a professional acting troupe coming to visit on March 21st.
