Bard in the Classroom Reflections



(My group reenacting a tragic scene that we were given)

The Bard on the Beach presentation was a very enjoyable interactive activity to be involved with

Every time we would start the activity we would do this warm up that got everybody pumped and waken up and we would be introduced a new activity every day that got everyone excited

The presentation taught me a lot about Shakespeare and the genres of plays he wrote, I especially learned a lot about his well known play “Much Ado About Nothing”

The presentation got everyone involved with enjoyable and fun activities, my favorite activity was the tableau, we were put in groups and we had to make poses of what the scene would look like some poses that we got were challenging but it was fun having everyone’s creative idea of what the scene would look like

Shakespeare wrote four genres of plays during his time. The first one he wrote is history which was a play that was based on real events that occurred during his time, most likely in England. The second genre is comedy, a basic play that involves humorous jokes, some plays contain romance. Romance plays contained super natural or fantasy types. And the last type of genre is tragedy, plays that would contain a lot of yelling and screaming, the characters would usually die at the end or near the end of the play
