The Los Rios Community College District, the UC Davis School Of Education, the Mondavi Center at UC Davis, and Shakespeare’s Globe in London are partners in a professional development initiative that provides in-depth learning opportunities for selected drama and English teachers of grades 7–12 and community colleges in the Sacramento region: The Globe Education Academy for Teachers.
Participants in this collaborative project are immersed in the world of Shakespeare both at UC Davis and in London. They will have the opportunity to take classes from Shakespeare’s Globe theater practitioners, and from faculty at UC Davis. The Academy will travel to Shakespeare’s Globe in London for two weeks in June 2015 to work with Globe Education practitioners. In fall 2015, participants will celebrate their extraordinary experience with a festival day of theater on stage at the Mondavi Center.
