Class Description: In this project, we will study the greatest poet-philosopher of all time. The vision of the class will still be for those who are ready to practice those awesome scholarly skills. It will give the scholars a chance to learn and study the master creator of so many of the words in our modern day English language. Scholars will get a chance to read 15 Shakespeare plays, participate in a Twelfth Night Shakespeare Festival these scholars will get a chance to put on a play that will be a whole commonwealth project. They will get a chance to develop their writing and performing voice in a fun and more relaxed environment. This will require a lot of support from parents when it comes to putting on the play. Parents will have the opportunity to help with props, costumes, makeup, ticket sales, backstage, and/or helping with concessions. This is a whole commonwealth project and is our big fundraiser for the year. It's going to be awesome!
