Elementary Education Conference--June 25-26 -Folger Shakespeare Library
Shakespeare is for everyone—including elementary students! Join expert teachers and Folger Education staff to learn how even young students can successfully engage with Shakespeare's plays and poetry.
The Folger Education philosophy of learning by doing (what we call performance-based teaching) works particularly well with young students. Furthermore, many of the techniques you'll encounter can be adapted for teaching any type of literature, not just Shakespeare.
At the conference, you'll learn:
How to prepare and teach language-based activities for elementary students
Activities for unifying language and action to help students interpret texts and master meaning
How to select, edit, and act out scenes from Shakespeare with your students
