Shedding Light on Shakespeare....
On Air, Online, & in the Classroom
Monday, April 22, 4:00 - 5:00 PM Eastern Time (1:00 - 2:00 PM Pacific Time)
Please join us on the eve of Shakespeare's birthday for a free online interactive workshop presented by WNET New York Public Media and hosted by the Amazing Resources for Educators community at edweb.net, sponsored by Big Deal Media. The workshop will highlight the recent PBS series Shakespeare Uncovered and accompanying free online educational resources.
Shakespeare Uncovered is a 6-part television program which explores the world and works of William Shakespeare through a combination of interviews with actors, directors and scholars; visits to key locations; clips from film and television adaptations of the plays; and excerpts staged especially for the series. The series tells the stories behind the stories of some of Shakespeare's greatest works: As You Like It, Henry IV, Henry V, Hamlet, Macbeth, Richard II, The Tempest and Twelfth Night. (View all six episodes online.)
During the online workshop, Shakespeare Uncovered Executive Producer Stephen Segaller will provide an overview of the series and WNET Outreach Producer Janice Fuld will showcase the free educational resources developed to bring the series - and Shakespeare - to life in the classroom. The session will include viewing and discussion of video from the series, an overview of the robust companion website, www.pbs.org/wnet/shakespeare-uncovered, and a discussion of strategies for exploring the series and related content with high school students.
