About the Experts

Experts from Folger Education are guest presenters for a March 18 webinar in the PBS Teachers LIVE! Series. The topic is "Remixing Shakespeare for 21st Century Students" and participants will learn practical and exciting ways they can incorporate Shakespeare’s King Lear, and other literary works, into history, social studies, English, and language arts instruction.

In this webinar, the speakers will present and demonstrate methods for teaching Shakespeare using digital media. These strategies were developed by workshop leaders and teachers during the Folger’s nationally recognized Teaching Shakespeare Institutes.
