When I first attended the “No Kidding Shakespeare Camp,” I had been teaching Shakespeare for years. I felt incredibly validated by the classes and exercises we did during the adult camp. I knew that what we were doing in my classes with middle and high school students was just and right and authentic.
Since that first year (2009), our own little summer Shakespeare Camp has grown and been recognized and validated for our adherence to the principles taught at ASC. Even today (1/11/14), we competed in the ESU Shakespeare Monologue contest, and the judge from the administration was blown away by the competence and artistry of our students. It was hard to choose a winner and runner-up.
Thank you, ASC, for giving us the confidence to move forward!
