UC Davis School of Education and Globe Education, Shakespeare’s Globe, in London are partners in the Globe Education Academy for Teachers, a professional development initiative that provides in-depth learning opportunities for selected UC Davis Credential/MA candidates,
Each year, members of the Globe Education Academy (GEA) travel to London for intensive, immersive training in the Globe Education Practices at Shakespeare’s Globe. The result is a unique program of study and practice, partnered with research, which provides active experiential tools for using the texts of Shakespeare to newly credentialed language arts, social studies/history, and multiple subject teachers.
During their first year of teaching, while completing their MA with the School of Education, students apply these new skills to their classroom practice, and take part in an ongoing research project evaluating the effectiveness of techniques. Working alongside advanced skills practitioners (mentors who are also working teachers), and the faculty of UC Davis School of Education, these MA students design curriculum for their classrooms, create points of inquiry and research, and present their findings in an MA symposium.
Continued Professional Development for Teachers
The Center provides professional development programs for Sacramento area teachers, both through workshops which teachers can attend individually, or through programs brought onsite to schools. These programs are led by Globe Educational Practitioners from Shakespeare’s Globe.
In-class Workshops and Performances for Students
The center also provides in-class workshops for students. These engaging programs are led by Globe Education Practitioners and can be tailored for K-12 students at every grade level.
