A Midsummer Night's Dream: Variety and Levity

Discovery through Play


Sarah Brewe, and Darren McGarvey enjoy studying A Midsummer Night's Dream with their students. The variety of characters in different social classes, the room in comedy for students to play with light and dark elements, and the ability to incorporate discussion topics into their final performance of the play makes this their favorite play to teach.


Having fun and learning, too! That's what bringing Shakespeare to life in your classroom can accomplish!
