Gina Voskov, an English teacher at the United Nations International School in New York City, enjoys exploring today's relevant topics with her middle and high school students, especially through Shakespeare's twisted lens of revenge: Titus Andronicus.

Teacher Talk

"When I was watching Muammer Gaddafi's tragic end... that made me think of Titus so I came to school the next day and started talking to my students about how the characters in Titus find joy in revenge, in the causing of pain to other people."
