Video: “Cal Shakes and Edna Brewer Middle School — Find kids learning here.”

Jana Maiuri, a 5th grade teacher at Edna Brewer Middle School, is passionate about teaching and the arts. And because she loves Shakespeare—and brings that love to her teaching—her students get to study these plays with artists from Cal Shakes.

They get on their feet, and give their own shape to the text—in their bodies, their voices, their exchanges with each other. Jana’s kids discover that even the strange language of Shakespeare’s plays can become familiar, can become their own.
