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.
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.
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.
