On April 5 and 6, 2018, Humanities Texas will hold workshops in Austin and San Antonio for secondary-level language arts teachers on teaching the plays of William Shakespeare. Faculty lectures will address the historical and cultural contexts of Shakespeare's works, approaches to commonly taught comedies and tragedies, teaching using performance-based strategies, and developing effective writing assignments that support and emerge from the study of Shakespeare's works. Workshop faculty includes J. Dennis Huston of Rice University, Ann Christensen and Laura Turchi of the University of Houston, and Paul Sullivan and Elizabeth Richmond-Garza of The University of Texas at Austin.
Teachers at all workshops will receive books and other instructional materials. Content at all of our spring workshops will be aligned with the TEKS.
