EDSITEment Shakespeare

EDSITEment, a partnership among the National Endowment for the Humanities, Verizon Foundation, and the National Trust for the Humanities, offers a treasure trove of K-12 high quality material on the Internet in the subject areas of Literature and Language Arts, Foreign Languages, Art and Culture, and History and Social Studies. 


EDSITEment Shakespeare lessons help teachers unlock the Bard for students of all ages. From the complex nature of revenge in Hamlet to the happy/unhappy endings in A Midsummer Night’s Dream, these lessons provide teachers with many activities to guide students through the close and deep reading of the plays required by the Common Core State Standards initiative. Students will revel in Shakespeare’s language, including his use of puns, and explore multiple interpretations of the plays.
