ASC believes that educators are one of the most important resources in our country.
We love working with teachers at all levels to bring the joy of Shakespeare to students & help cure ShakesFear. Now, just like you, ASC is pivoting to offer services for teachers virtually.
With SHXClass, you can take a break and let ASC Education Artists engage your classroom on the themes you’ve selected. Or, dive deep with our SHXTeach will give you the tools and content to make Shakespeare exciting and interactive for your students now and in the future. SHXAct brings our professional actors to your class for a virtual, hour-long, personalized experience.
Or, bring the Playhouse into your classroom via a digital performance via our streaming platform BlkFrsTV. Offered in multiple formats, your students can watch as Shakespeare leaps off the page and onto the stage via cinema-quality video of a real performance.
Let ASC cure your Zoom fatigue while you sit back and learn with your students. We will engage them (and you) in enriching and exciting ways on your schedule.
Our education artists will teach your class and re-energize the learning experience for you and your students via live streamed workshops.
