Bard in the Classroom: Professional Development for School Teachers

Transform your classroom practice with interactive and playful Professional Development workshops for teachers.

Our Professional Development workshops are open to educators of all grades, subjects, and levels of experience from across BC. In these interactive workshops we focus on inviting play into the classroom, revealing games and activities that will support your students to connect meaningfully and creatively with Shakespeare’s language, stories and characters.

Year-round Professional Development Workshops

Bard in the Classroom Professional Development workshops can also be booked year round for:

  • Full day (3 hour morning block and 2 hour afternoon block)
  • Introductory half-day (3 hour block)

“I can honestly say that I will never teach Shakespeare the same way again! I was inspired, engaged, entertained, and I don’t remember the last time I laughed so hard during a Shakespeare class. I left your workshop feeling extremely motivated to be a better teacher and my love for Shakespeare grew even more.” Anja Zulic, English/ELL teacher at Alpha Secondary

“Wow, Mary is an inspired practitioner…..the type of work that changed the way I entered the school on Monday morning.” Jason Donaldson, Gulf Islands Secondary School

We can arrange on-site workshops for your school or district. Contact our Education Coordinator, Katie Johnstone, at for more information and to make a booking.
