USA WORKSHOPS

Bright Torches offers workshops for schools, differentiated for all grades and abilities. These workshops can be delivered in-person or remotely using Zoom.

Workshops can serve as an introduction to any Shakespeare play, a consolidation of teaching that has already taken place or revision.

 

Workshops support the Common Core Reading and Writing Standards for English Language Arts & Literacy in History/Social Studies, Science and Technical Subjects at Grades 6-12.
