"Remixing Shakespeare for 21st Century Students" with experts from the Folger Shakespeare Library and veteran teachers.
PBS Teachers® and Classroom 2.0 are partnering on a series of free monthly webinars designed to help preK-12 educators learn new ways to integrate online instructional resources in the classroom and engage students in curriculum lessons. The webinar series features leading education experts, authors, and PBS producers who will discuss timely and relevant curriculum-related topics, and share their knowledge and ideas on using digital media to create rich learning experiences for students
William Shakespeare’s plays offer invaluable lessons for students, but engaging the Net Generation in the Renaissance arts requires a new approach. In this webinar, the speakers will present and demonstrate methods for teaching Shakespeare using digital media. The educational activities to be presented were developed by trained workshop leaders and teachers during the Folger’s Teaching Shakespeare Institutes and sessions. Participants will learn practical and exciting ways they can incorporate Shakespeare, and other literary works, into history, social studies, English, and language arts instruction.
