About this Grantee

Ms. Kurceba and Ms. Cotton lead their fourth-grade students on a multidisciplinary journey of the Elizabethan era. Assuming roles as writer, historian, and artist, students study Shakespeare and the period in preparation to host a Shakespeare Festival. Students learn calligraphy to create invitations and a playbill, and design and build props for the festival. After working with local high school drama students to learn acting skills, the fourth-grade students perform two Shakespearean plays and period dances at the festival.
