The Philadelphia Shakespeare Theater’s educational outreach programs–whether it is a play adapted for a school assembly, the residency program, or a matinee at the theater—provide teachers and students with a wealth of ma-terials to utilize in the language arts classroom. The theater provides lessons and materials that help teachers to build context and background knowledge and develop relevant vocabulary prior to experiencing the play, as well as resources to aid discussion and scaffold comprehension afterwards. In addition, these resources also connect con-tent-area skills and topics, such as analyzing character and interpreting figurative language, to the play itself.
