Teacher Handbooks

“So many classroom activities! Teaching Shakespeare for the first time was much less stressful!”
–Teacher, Illinois School for the Deaf, Jacksonville

Each of our original teacher handbooks includes active, engaging teaching activities, centuries of critical thinking, synopses, and much more. Teaching activities—all aligned with the Common Core State Standards—are designed to draw upon some of the same practices and techniques that actors use in the rehearsal process to break open Shakespeare's challenging language.
