City College students to be featured in 'virtual field trip' learning Shakespeare

March 05, 2012|Erica L. Green

A high school English class at Baltimore City College will be featured in a virtual field trip Tuesday afternoon at 1 p.m., where students and teachers nationwide can go to the Folger Shakespeare Library and discover techniques for reading and understanding Shakespeare language. 

An English I class at City was filmed for the documentary film, which will be featured on PBS and online in the coming weeks. According to a description of the fim, we'll see "a  high school classroom in Baltimore to see students grappling with the language of Shakespeare and using performance to discover meaning, take a trip backstage with professional actors rehearsing for a Shakespeare performance, see original documents relating to Shakespeare’s life and times, and enjoy special behind-the-scenes access to the Folger." 

During the program, students will have the opportunity to submit questions about Shakespeare via tweet or e-mail to be answered live during the broadcast by a panel including Folger experts and two of the BCPSS students and their teacher, Mr. Mark Miazga, featured in the documentary."
