It's Friday, which makes it a masterclass day. Today we did a workshop on Merchant of Venice with actor Henry Goodman. It was a really good time- he's very funny and very energetic. He talks a mile a minute (all really intelligent stuff, too), and claps his hands a lot.
Working on Merchant made me remember ninth grade with Ms. Moe, who thought that six ninth graders couldn't possibly have the mental capacity to read an act of Shakespeare out loud in half and hour. We had such a good time with it, too. We were practically killing oursleves laughing, I remember, making up all these side little stories. Made me smile.
