At the Folger Shakespeare Library, we’re proud to work alongside teachers from across the country to develop engaging, effective tools for teaching and learning Shakespeare and other complex texts.
The Folger approach
Our approach to education:
- Connects students with Shakespeare’s language head on, so that they own the plays and everything in them.
- Builds on that foundation with elements of performance and scholarship, at a level and in a way that only the Folger Shakespeare Library can.
- Supports all students in reading closely, asking good questions, citing textual evidence, and benefiting from lasting relationships with words and ideas.
