Experiencing Shakespeare makes Shakespeare come alive for students. Through television, the web, and social media, students explore the Folger Shakespeare Library, a leader in teaching Shakespeare, and home to the world's largest Shakespeare collection. Experiencing Shakespeare reveals the genius of Shakespeare, inspires students to read Shakespeare's works, and empowers them to understand his language. They'll travel backstage with professional actors rehearsing for a Shakespeare performance, see original documents relating to Shakespeare's life and times, and enjoy special behind-the-scenes access to the Folger. Folger experts answer questions about Shakespeare that were submitted by students during the live webcast.
