    One thought on “How to Teach Your Children Shakespeare”

    1. I have a great love and appreciation for the works of William Shakespeare, especially his comedies I was fortunate to have been introduced to Shakespeare s works by my mom while I was in middle school and I definitely reaped the benefits in high school and college So it was a pleasant surprise when I came across this work by playwright Ken Ludwig I ll admit I was a bit skeptical that I would be able to teach my 6 and 7 year old how to memorize and recite passages from some of The Bard s greatest [...]

    2. I won this book from First Reads.I found this book to be enjoyable, and wish I d had it when I was in high school English class Plots from some of the plays were explained in a way that was really easy to understand There are a couple of pieces of Shakespeare I had wanted to try and learn for the fun of it, and this book had some nice tips for learning them This is one I plan on keeping around for sure if I ever have kids of my own someday.

    3. Library.I know nothing about Shakespeare or his works Seriously, I am just starting to learn about Shakespeare.Oh, I know what is common knowledge I recognize some lines from Shakespeare and probably which play they re from I think I read Romeo and Juliet in High School Freshman English Maybe and maybe Macbeth at some point It s possible highly likely even I only read the parts that we read in class This book was a big help Ludwig walks the reader through many plays, introducing the play its plo [...]

    4. Originally posted on my blog, A Lovely Bookshelf on the Wall Confession I am a very reluctant Shakespeare reader I don t remember being exposed to his works before high school, and I don t remember my teachers showing much spirit when Romeo and Juliet and Julius Caesar came along on the syllabus We re a homeschooling family, and I know there will be time I ll have to teach things I m not terribly interested in But I want my daughter to appreciate Shakespeare s works in the same way I want her to [...]

    5. This was both a great introduction to several of Shakespeare s plays, as well as a practical guide to introducing him to your children through the explanation and memorization of 25 passages from 9 different plays as well as suggestions for bonus passages I was thoroughly inspired by Ken Ludwig s obvious love of Shakespeare and convinced that memorizing is the way to go if you want to really develop a love for and understanding of his work This was somewhat of a revelation for me, as I have so f [...]

    6. Shakespeare should not be an occasional visitor He should be a permanent houseguest, living in that spare room down the hall, ready to join you for a meal or an evening whenever you crave his company Everyone with kids should read this book Everyone without kids should read this book.

    7. I have a new found appreciation and courage to tackle Shakespeare I recall being assigned to read Shakespeare without any hand holding Shakespeare writing is deeper than what meets the eye and as a high schooler trying to read and truly understand was difficult I no longer feel that way and plan on sharing this with my children Ken Ludwig along with Charlotte Mason has inspired me to share Shakespeare with my children from the beginning and not wait until they are in high school I believe starti [...]

    8. This book was a joy to read Ludwig teaches you how to help your children memorize key passages from Shakespeare s plays Each passage he uses he gives you an introduction to the play and plot so your children can understand the context of the part they are memorizing This book deepened my love and appreciation for Shakespeare s works and I already loved them quite a bit I can t wait to use this book with my children when they are older, and I think I may start memorizing the passages myself just [...]

    9. Useful, basic, probably best for people who don t already obsess about Shakespeare Emphasis on memorization Somehow still uses sullied flesh instead of solid, but otherwise decent.

    10. This is the book I will credit with really getting me into Shakespeare I cannot WAIT to read, listen to and watch everything Shakespeare, then memorize favourite passages on top of it all So begins what will likely be a lifelong obsession

    11. So helpful Ludwig s enthusiasm for Shakespeare is contagious and this book has made teaching reading Shakespeare much less daunting for me I will revisit this book in the future.

    12. Note This book was provided by Blogging For Books for free in exchange for an honest review It is clear from even a cursory look at this book that Ken Ludwig has a passion for drama Ludwig is a multiple Tony Award winning dramatist and a fan of Shakespeare from his youth, and he shares with parents and teachers the intended audience for this work the same sort of tips to teach Shakespeare to children that he used with his own children Although the book is somewhat lengthy including its appendice [...]

    13.

    14. Love, love, love this book Read it in just a couple hours and I can t wait to start teaching E She s way too young for the big passages oh, and she can t read because she s not even three yet but she loves to repeat and has an excellent memory, so she can surely start on some of the lines This book is fantastic, full review to come allthebookblognamesaretaken.blfacebook AllTheBookBlogNamesAitter SarahsBookNookRating 5 StarsLoved this book Loved, loved, loved it I breezed through the book in a ma [...]

    15. This is an interesting book, but I had to return it to the library before I could finish it If I am ever seeking to teach children Shakespeare, this is a book that I would want to use as a resource.

    16. Ken Ludwig most definitely loves Shakespeare and he clearly communicates that throuugh his writing I would highly recommend for parents who homeschool or those who are looking to do some supplemental learning with their children His techniques are excellent and his explanations are interesting and clearly expert That said, I really don t see using his memorization techniques with my own son, but I will try to use some of it in my classroom It is not possible in my classroom to spend as much time [...]

    17. Lots of fun Mostly the book is set up as a guide on how to teach Shakespeare via rote memorization of passages and texts But while that has the potential to be boring he frequently cites examples from his own children s education to show that at some point, memorization or not, Shakespeare s words take over and the young minds begin their questions What does tomorrow and tomorrow and tomorrow mean Why does wherefore mean why and not where Why does Shakespeare put Love and Death in the same play [...]

    18. Ultimately I think this is probably a little bit intense than I want to be about teaching my son to memorize Shakespeare, but it has great tips on how to work on memorization that I can see us using for important texts Shakespeare, yes, but also poems and speeches and the Bible I feel like I have an adequate knowledge of Shakespeare, but there are some big plays that I have never read, and Ludwig explains the plots and the importance of some famous speeches with great enthusiasm and passion I l [...]

    19. I m not a great Shakespeare fan and this book hasn t changed that but it has helped me understand about Shakespeare s plays and how to make them accessible to my children The main premise of the book is to teach the children short passages from the plays so that something is familiar to them Along with the passage, the child needs to understand the meaning of the passage and the play Ludwig uses passages from some of the most well known plays and goes over their background At the end of the boo [...]

    20. Wow This really impressive volume urges us to introduce Shakespeare to our children by memorizing key passages This would make an IDEAL companion to a Charlotte Mason style Shakespeare reading program for children choose a child friendly play, read, discuss, and memorize a passage Ludwig has an absolutely contagious love for Shakespeare and a firm belief that our children can learn and enjoy the Bard from a young age Delightful One caveat not sure the chapters on Falstaff and especially the Merr [...]

    21. Oh, so much fun, but alas, I am not an actor This would require dedication to Shakespeare than I have.

    22. It s not a bad book, and I do love me some Shakespeare, but it did feel a bit OTT with a cover endorsement by Sir Derek Jacobi CBE, introduction by John Lithgow, coverslip exhortation to the prospective reader that Nothing gives your child a head start in life like knowing the works of Shakespeare It s just not all that.In fact, it s pretty easy to summarise Ludwig s teaching method in far fewer than the 300 odd pages he stretches it out to 1 Help your kids memorise and recite interesting and im [...]

    23. For a while now, I ve been wanting to learn about Shakespeare s works, but hesitant to begin This book was the perfect introduction to some of his plays and gave step by step instructions for how to memorize them After reading this book, I can better comprehend what Shakespeare s phrases are saying, recite a few stanzas, and understand just how gifted a playwright William Shakespeare really was Although this book is specifically for children, How to Teach Your Children Shakespeare is a great tea [...]

    24. This was a bit over my kids heads they re 9 and 12 , and we didn t memorize many of the passages, because that s not what I wanted to do I wanted to build an appreciation for Shakespeare and a familiarity with his work This book, along with the Shakespeare stories by E Nesbit, David Timson, and Charles and Mary Lamb, were a great starting point We will continue to read and study Shakespeare for many years to come I loved Mr Ludwig s suggestions for having kids act out the various scenes

    25. I liked it overall, but it did get a bit repetitive as far as the approach to teaching kids The author has some good suggestions, though, and his passion for Shakespeare and language in general is clear throughout the book Reading this actually re kindled my own love of Shakespeare, whom I had not read since my college days As a homeschooling parent, I definitely plan on using some of his ideas soon with my own son.

    26. We study Shakespeare in our homeschool, and this is one of my favorite tools for doing that We read kid friendly versions of the stories, listen to audio productions, and memorize the passages Ludwig has selected The context he provides for explaining the passages to the kids is great, and my kids LOVE the memory work My youngest has been joining in since she was two it s a little unsettling to hear your toddler recite Macbeth s Tomorrow soliloquy, but whatever A wonderful resource.

    27. I read enough of this book to be able to put it on pause and use it for each play that we encounter Such good stuff in how to memorize and the meter in which to read His excitement for Shakespeare is obvious and contagious It makes you want to love Shakespeare as much as he does He makes it SO approachable for ANY age ANY AGE Ahem.I got this for a scream of a deal on my kindle Would be worth every penny to buy in a hard copy.
