|The ground-breaking Shakespeare Set Free series from Folger Education bristles with the energy of teaching and learning Shakespeare from the text and through active performance. Each volume reflects the experience, wisdom, and wit of classroom teachers in schools and colleges throughout the United States.
Shakespeare Set Free is based on two key beliefs. The first is that the best way for students to learn Shakespeare is by doing Shakespeare. The second is that Shakespeare is for everyone—that all students, at all ability levels, can access, appreciate, and have fun with the works of this brilliant playwright.
|Packed with practical, specific ideas, Shakespeare Set Free books are written by Folger Education's Teaching Shakespeare Institute faculty and participants, and include the latest developments in recent scholarship.
Each book includes:
Clearly written essays by leading scholars to refresh teachers and challenge older students
Effective and accessible techniques for teaching Shakespeare through performance and engaging students in Shakespeare's language and plays
- Day-by-day teaching strategies that successfully and energetically immerse students of every grade and skill level in the language and in the plays themselves—created, taught, and written by real teachers
