Dogwood Elementary hosts a visit from the TN Shakespeare Company

Germantown, Tennessee--March 18, 2019--Each year Dogwood Elementary hosts a visit from the TN Shakespeare company.  The main focus of year’s visit with Dogwood Elementary School fifth graders was to expose students to Shakespearean-styled speech and to teach them beginner techniques in theatrical production. On the first day of this 2-day event, the students participated in classroom workshops where they learned a lines from one of Shakespeare's plays.  After learning their lines,  the students were taught to say the lines in dramatic ways in order to express different emotions. On the second day, students got to actually see a part of Shakespeare's The Tempest performed by the TN Shakespeare company. Teacher, Linda Fredrick said, “I think the exposure to Shakespeare in this entertaining way in the fifth grade will lead to excitement at the thought of studying Shakespeare in high school.”
