Folger Education believes the best way to learn Shakespeare is by doing Shakespeare. Our performance-based, language-centered approach makes us a national leader in K-12 Shakespeare education. Together with teachers around the country, we've figured out some wonderful ways to teach Shakespeare.
Our growing online teaching resources provide Shakespeare lesson plans and other materials for teachers nationwide and around the world, including audio and video podcasts, and an expanding list of web features, including our first-ever live Electronic Field Trip! Meanwhile, Shakespeare for Kids offers plenty of Shakespeare-related games, activities, and creative fun.
Whether you are a teacher or a student, we offer many enrichment opportunities through local and national programs that include student festivals, classroom workshops, and teaching workshops and institutes. Teachers can learn and develop new material during the summer Teaching Shakespeare Institute or through a Shakespeare Set Free workshop or Folger mini-institute closer to home. Come join us as we create innovative teaching materials and ideas together!
