Shakespeare’s Globe: Academy for Teachers

The Los Rios Community College District; the School of Education, and Mondavi Center, University of California, Davis; and Shakespeare’s Globe in London are partners in a professional development initiative that provides in-depth learning opportunities for selected drama and English teachers of grades 7-12 and community colleges in the Sacramento region.

Now in its eighth year, the Globe Academy immerses teachers in the world of Shakespeare both at UC Davis and in London.

Teachers will participate in workshops from Shakespeare’s Globe theatre practitioners and faculty at UC Davis. The Academy travels to Shakespeare’s Globe in London for two weeks in June 2015 to work with Globe Education practitioners, and will celebrate their extraordinary experience with a festival day of theatre on stage at Mondavi Center in Fall 2015.
