Event description
Study some of Shakespeare’s most prominent plays and learn how these central themes are embedded within our own lives.

About this Event

It has been more than 400 years since Shakespeare left this earth, and yet today, we can still find light and insight within his words and lessons. His way with language still transforms us into spectators of common human behaviour, exploring notions of hate and fate, love and death, freedom and justice, gender and class.

In this intensive course, students will explore ways in which Shakespeare is more relevant in our world today than ever. Investigating the central themes from the plays “Taming of the Shrew”, “Twelfth Night” and “Hamlet”, students will compare and contrast modern day manifestations. Using these lessons from Shakespeare, students will unveil problem-solving strategies that are applicable in their own lives.

THS High School students can receive a 0.25 elective credit after completion of the course.

About the teacher: Alison Harding is the High School Vice Principal, but at her core, an English and Humanities teacher. Finding real-life meaning in literature is a strong interest and sharing this discovery with students is her intention. With a number of years of experience in the English classroom teaching Shakespeare, she hopes to spread an appreciation for his wise worlds and life lessons.
