Audio and Video Resources

As technology changes the way that students interact with and communicate with each other, it can also be a powerful teaching tool in the classroom.

Folger Education brings you audio and video podcasts from the experts. Designed for educators, the Teaching Shakespeare series can help prepare you to teach a Shakespeare play or unit. Created for individual plays, the Insider's Guides are ideal ways to introduce students to Shakespeare's works.

Teaching Shakespeare

Shakespeare is for everyone. The Teaching Shakespeare series of audio and video podcats provides strategies for engaging students as they encounter the works of one of the world's greatest playwrights. See how performance-based teaching works, learn how to interpret pivotal scenes by making audio mashups with your students, and more.

Insider's Guides

These short, play-specific audio and video clips are designed as introductions for students (or those seeking a refresher!). Hear Folger Education staff, actors, and teachers share their unique perspectives on major themes in the plays. 

Folger Exhibition Audio Tours

Take a personal tour with the curators and gain behind-the-scenes insights into the Folger collection with audio guides to our changing exhibitions. You can also explore the Folger Shakespeare Library itself with a guided tour narrated by Folger Director Gail Kern Paster.

Other Audio and Video Resources


The Folger's wide range of online offerings includes a variety of audio and video podcasts, poetry readings, musical recordings, radio documentaries, and more from Folger programs, lectures, exhibitions, and other productions. Hear and see Folger scholars, educators, and artists talk about Shakespeare and the whole of the early modern age.

Other important Folger digital resources include our social networking links and a versatile, searchable image database that brings you in touch with our collection.
