Teaching Shakespeare!

A Folger Education Blog

Proof that Elementary Students Have FUN with Shakespeare!

Jennifer Ventimiglia’s classroom at Paul Public Charter School in Washington, DC is alive with literary inspiration in the form  of books, posters, and most importantly to us Shakespeare! Ms. Venti’s 6th grade English as a Second Language students have been studying Shakespeare all year long with our Shakespeare Steps Out  program.

Beyond that they have gone the extra mile with added activities and lessons that extend the sessions provided by Folger. Most importantly they had fun, which was evidenced in this memory book video sent to us by the class.

Ms. Venti began her journey at the Folger by using online resources and attending our first Elementary Education Conference in 2009. She has inspired me as much as Shakespeare has inspired her and her students!

Start (or continue) your journey with our Elementary Educators’ Conference June 23-24!
