Free Demo: Intro to Shakespeare 5/14 at 8 p.m.

 

Course Description This summer, Mr. Felix will offer a writing-intensive course where students will read and analyze a play by Shakespeare and study its significance through discussions. Our free demo class will give you a taste of how student will learn to identify and analyze specific devices used by our Bard (iambic pentameter, antithesis, repetition, etc.). You will also see how this course is conducted around a virtual Harkness table, a popular learning format in elite US boarding schools that champions student-led discussions. 
Teacher Felix Bao from Brighter Bee Academy

Felix Bao is a recent graduate from The Hotchkiss School (Top 2 U.S Private High School). He is a passionate scholar who dedicated the past two years of his life reading, performing, and analyzing the Bard’s writings and their various interpretations by contemporary artists and scholars. Felix has read all of Shakespeare’s 38 plays and has written extensively about Merchant of Venice, As You Like It, Richard II, Macbeth, and King Lear during his senior honors elective “Shakespeare and the Bible.” Besides being a self-proclaimed Shakespeare nerd, Felix has made stunning efforts in the School’s theater program as an actor, director, stage manager, and playwright with a focus on Euro-American modern drama. His experience with the inner workings of a production granted him not only the knowledge about staging a play but also an outstanding talent to work with younger peers. Felix will attend Columbia University this September with an intended major in English literature and performing arts.

Grade This course is appropriate for 7th to 10th grade students.
