A group of Travis School District teachers are working to put a little more punch and enthusiasm in Shakespeare for the students.
Armed with a $7,300 grant from the Institute for Teaching and knowledge from a workshop at Shakespeare’s famed Globe Theatre in London, Aimee Korynta is leading the way in revolutionizing how Shakespeare is taught at both Golden West Middle School and Vanden High School, beginning this month.
“Not everyone develops a love of Shakespeare,” Korynta said. “The idea is to get the students up and out of their seats. I love Shakespeare. Shakespeare is my passion but I knew I wasn’t doing it right.”
