As companion to RJA, we are offering our PAN education program, led by a professional actor educator focusing on Shakespeare’s most famous play about forbidden love.
Schools that sign up to this program will benefit from three 75 minute classroom workshops for each participating class, led by a professional actor-educator focusing on one Shakespeare play. When we piloted the PAN in 2019, participating teachers indicated that these interactive workshops made a measurable impact on presentation skills, literacy, self-expression and teamwork in their classroom.
