Mr. David Barclay Caldwell (DC)
Dear parents, guardians…and of course, our budding young actors:
Well, I hope everyone out there is safe and ok. These are very unusual times, and I know that there are new challenges ahead. However, as we say in Theater..."The Show Must Go On!"
That Texan spirit that I have come to know, and love can take on any challenge and come out winning at the other end.
Now, as we will be teaching remotely, all classes will be done through Google Classroom. I’ve already put some work for us to do but more will be on it’s way including…
The Make Up & Costume Challenge: Finding things around the house to make a costume with.
Shadow Theater & Toy Theater: How to make a theater from things we can find around the house.
Shakespeare in the Park: Performances of our favorite Shakespeare characters from the garden or local park.
And many more… Watch this space!
Each class has an individual code which I have put below. Each day, I'll be putting up lessons, videos, and activities that will not only entertain us, but hopefully help entertain our families too.
Incidentally, legend has it that William Shakespeare himself had to self-isolate, when he was hiding from the black plague, and when he did, he still managed to write "King Lear".
And… he didn't have Google Classroom or even a computer. All he had was some parchment paper, some ink and a few goose feathers! How cool is that?
