The Bard. He can be a little intimidating, right? If you’ve ever wondered how to introduce your kids to Shakespeare, you are in a for a treat with this podcast episode.

Many of us met Shakespeare in a way that didn’t set us up to love him or even understand him. But today, I’m joined by Ken Ludwig, award-winning playwright and author of How to Teach your Children Shakespeare – my very favorite resource for doing just that!

IN THIS EPISODE, YOU’LL HEAR:

  • Why we should make Shakespeare a part of our curriculum
  • How to get over the intimidation factor, once and for all
  • Exactly how and where to start teaching your kids Shakespeare (I promise, it’s easier than you think!)

QUOTES TO REMEMBER:

You only have to start with a little bit (of Shakespeare), just a little taste of it and it starts opening doors.”

Ken Ludwig

“(Shakespeare) makes them better readers, because they have to learn to read slowly and understand every word they read. That’s how you conquer Shakespeare.

Ken Ludwig
