Professional Development for School Teachers

Why Shakespeare? Why now? And how?

What place does Shakespeare have in the contemporary classroom and in BC’s curriculum? Is there value in exploring Shakespeare’s plays and poems today? If so, how do we approach Shakespeare in ways that reflect present-day values, foster community, and promote social-emotional learning?

Join the Education team from Bard on the Beach Shakespeare Festival as we discuss these questions and share our participant-first, inquiry-based approach to exploring and interpreting Shakespeare’s plays.
