Schools for Cities: Urban Strategies

First published in 2003 as a complement to the Shakespeare in American Communities national theater touring initiative, the Shakespeare in American Communities educational toolkit provides everything a teacher might need to bring Shakespeare alive in middle- and high-school classrooms. The toolkit contains, among other things, an audio CD, two award-winning films, a recitation contest, teacher's guide, and posters, especially created as a coherent curriculum. This toolkit is available only to teachers through the Shakespeare in American Communities website.
