Part of Education

BAM, the Royal Shakespeare Company, Folger Shakespeare Library, and the Ohio State University come together to share their most effective strategies and activities for teaching Shakespeare to students in elementary, middle, and high school. Educators at all experience levels are welcome to attend this conference designed to address the challenges they face in making Shakespeare’s work accessible to students and bringing Shakespeare’s work to life in the classroom. The conference includes workshop options that specifically address the four plays from King and Country: Shakespeare’s Great Cycle of Kings, which are being performed in repertory by the RSC at BAM during the month of April. The full-day conference comprises morning and afternoon sessions with collaborative group reflection throughout.

Space is limited; priority is given to teachers who also take advantage of our in-school residencies Shakespeare Teaches Students. Shakespeare Teaches Teachers is a Department of Education-approved course and offered for 2 P-credits for New York City teachers.
