FOLGER Shakespeare Library

THE WORLD'S LEADING CENTER FOR SHAKESPEARE STUDIES

The Folger Shakespeare Library is one of the world's leading centers for scholarship, learning, and culture. The Folger is dedicated to advancing knowledge and increasing understanding of Shakespeare and the early modern period; it is home to the world's largest Shakespeare collection and one of the leading collections of books and materials of the entire early modern period (1500-1750). Combining a worldclass research library and scholarly programs; leadership in curriculum, training, and publishing for K-12 education; and award-winning performing arts, exhibitions, and lectures, the Folger is Shakespeare's home in America.

This volume of the Shakespeare Set Free series is written by institute faculty and participants, and includes the latest developments in recent scholarship. It bristles with the energy created by teaching and learning Shakespeare from the text and through active performance, and reflects the experience, wisdom, and wit of real classroom teachers in schools and colleges throughout the United States.

In this book, you'll find the following:

  • Clearly written essays by leading scholars to refresh teachers and challenge older students
  • Effective and accessible techniques for teaching Shakespeare through performance and engaging students in Shakespeare's language and plays
  • Day-by-day teaching strategies for Hamlet and Henry IV, Part 1 that successfully and energetically immerse students of every grade and skill level in the language and in the plays themselves — created, taught, and written by real teachers

Synopsis:

Teachers nationwide have been enthusiastically recommending this unique series from the Folger Shakespeare Library's Teaching Shakespeare Institute. This text includes provocative essays written by scholars to refresh both teacher and student, successful and understandable techniques for teaching through performance, and teaching methods that engage students at all levels.

It is always a challenge to teach Shakespeare to high school students but I had an awesome time teaching "A Midsummer Night's Dream" with this book. The lessons are designed in sequence but it is flexible enough to teachers pick and choose. My students loved learning and now have less fear when approaching Shakespeare. I went out and got the rest of the books. Highly recommend it.
