National Endowment for the Arts

Shakespeare in America logo
As you begin this school year, take a moment 
to write to The National Endowment for the Arts 
and request a Shakespeare in American Communities kit.

The last few years in 6th grade we taught from this amazing 
gift (which is free from NEA). Simply go to their 
webpage and click Order Educational Package.

Consider hosting a recitation contest at your site, and you 
will be blown away by the abilities of your students. 
Literally, this contest brought tears to my eyes (and 
those of a few colleagues).  We had no idea 
our students were so talented when they 
performed their recitation piece. 

As you know, Shakespeare will fit in with poetry 
in some part of your pacing guide during the year.
Get students motivated and keep the arts 
alive!!!
