Shakespeare’s Stories – Reading and bringing life to words(Age 8-12)
Shakespeare is widely regarded as one of the best writers of all time in the English Language.
The works of Shakespeare are often required reading in secondary schools. Come and discover
the fun of Shakespeare and be better prepared for it in English class.
In this course, students will be introduced to the stories of Shakespeare and to bring
Shakespeare’s stories to life through rehearsed reading. Through adding vocal and physical

Students will learn to:
• communicate changes in mood
• speak audibly and clearly with good diction
• demonstrate vocal contrast, appropriate to the moods, narrative and dialogue
• use the face to reflect emotions
This is a great course to learn the skills to succeed in the prose reading competitions in the

“Speak what we feel, not what we ought to say.” – William Shakespeare (King Lear, Act 5, Scene 3)
