CYS IN SCHOOLS
Chicago Youth Shakespeare offers a variety of workshops and residency programs for middle and high school students and their teachers during the school day. Designed specifically for each school's curriculum and student learning goals, projects can range from a single workshop, to a full week of immersion classes or longer-term residency program. CYS teaching artists work collaboratively with classroom teachers to make Shakespeare come alive in their classrooms, giving them the tools to get students up on their feet and participating actively in the learning process.
Now I am more confident in analyzing Shakespeare’s vocabulary and the messages inside of it. This week was life-changing. It made me look at the world differently. – Middle school student (CYS in Schools residency)
Thank you CYS! I learned that I'm more versatile than I think. I learned that I should never apologize for what I love to do. I learned never to give up. — Middle school student (CYS in Schools)
