Remixing Shakespeare



Christopher Shamburg shows you step-by-step how to create original audio dramas with your students using scenes from Shakespeare. "If you can use a word-processing program and a tape recorder, you have 90 percent of the technical skills to create a remix," promises Shamburg.


Remixing Shakespeare engages students in time-honored techniques for understanding literarary text through free and legal use of current  technology.



Remixing Shakespeare is a project of Folger Education, Robert G. Young, Director, and Folger External Relations, Garland Scott, Head.
