This active workshop is designed for teachers of all stages and ages. Participants will learn highly effective techniques for connecting all students to Shakespeare's language. Teachers will collaboratively practice scaffolded strategies that get students reading closely, asking good questions and citing textual evidence.  Educators will also learn more about the First Folio (what it is, why it matters, and how teachers and students can use it). Participants will walk away with new knowledge about this historic book and its pedagogical possibilities in today's classrooms.
