Teaching Shakespeare!

A Folger Education Blog


For four decades the Folger Shakespeare Library’s Education Department has been revolutionizing the way Shakespeare is taught in classrooms.  Our programs and resources have supported teachers in all kinds of schools and students at all ability levels, both locally and nationally, showing how the study of his work deepens knowledge and hones skills across key academic areas.

More than two million teachers and students each year benefit from in-person workshops, lesson plans, online field trips, and the best-selling Folger Editions of Shakespeare’s plays. The Folger is a leader in active language-based education, which helps to build deep reading skills critical to student success. As defined by the Common Core and other state standards focused on College and Career Readiness!
