Shreds and Patches is an imagining of Shakespeare's Hamlet like no other! An excellent easy-to-stage competition piece that fuses Shakespearean speech with modern dialogue - a super fun way to bring Shakespeare into the classroom!

Drama Teacher Self Check-In

Wow — we’ve made it to the end of the year. Teaching has looked very different recently, but give yourselves a pat on the back for a job well done. We have the opportunity now to rest, reflect, and rejuvenate, so we can start the new year fresh, armed with the knowledge and experiences that have gotten us through 2020. 

Take a few moments to think back over your teaching experiences, and jot down any feelings or ideas that arise. Think about how your experiences this year have shaped you and your style of teaching. Whether you’ve been teaching online, in person, or a combination of both, you have accomplished a lot! Be proud of the work you’ve done, and enjoy a well-earned break.


1. How do you feel right now compared to the start of the year? How are you the same? How are you different

2. What have you learned this year?

3. What has worked well? How can you do more of that next year?

4. What hasn’t worked so well? How can you adjust it to make it work better in the future? Or, could you eliminate it entirely?

5. How have you grown and changed as an educator?

6. Did you feel supported by your administration this year? Why or why not

7. How were you able to advocate for yourself/your students/your program?

8. What has been your biggest win this year? Describe it in detail. How did you feel afterwards? How can you continue this success going forward?

9. What has been the biggest challenge you’ve faced? How did you overcome it? Can you re-frame it to become a learning experience?

10. What was the funniest thing that happened this term?
