Claudius’s Soliloquy: What We Can Learn from Hamlet’s Villain with Ramie Targoff, A Two-Session Master Class (CTLE credits given)

Open to: All Full-time PreK-12 Classroom Teachers
Opportunity at a Glance: Focus on a single extraordinary scene in Shakespeare’s Hamlet when the guilt-ridden Claudius confesses his crime and struggles to pray.  During the first session, with Brandeis professor Targoff, the class will explore what this soliloquy tells us about Claudius’s tortured inner self, and what it means that Hamlet misreads what he sees happening before him. 

During the second session, participants will exchange ideas with other brilliant teachers.  Participants are assigned a small amount of homework to prepare for each session. CTLE-credit is available.  This program is free for public and charter school teachers, and participants are selected by application and nomination.
Key dates:  Tuesday February 9th, 2021 and Wednesday February 10th, 2021 from 4:00p.m. – 5:15p.m.
Location: Virtual
Registration deadline: 01/05/2021
