Mrs. Castro is teaching Shakespeare to middle school students, offered as a Project Based Learning elective. Students will learn about the life and times of William Shakespeare and study several of his famous plays. This year’s theme for the festival is Twelfth Night. In December the PBL will travel to the performing arts center to watch the play Twelfth Night. In April the PBL will attend the DPS Shakespeare Festival to perform their scene.
