In this course, Shakespeare Online Book Club for Teens, we will read through excerpts of plays by William Shakespeare. As we are reading, we will go on rabbit trails of discovery into history, nature, science, art, and more. We will find ways to learn by experiencing parts of the plays through hands-on activities.

At the conclusion of each play, we will have a party school to celebrate the play which will include a theatrical version of the play.

This online literary guide has everything you need to study Shakespeare. This course includes vocabulary, free-write questions, rabbit trails, and a few project ideas. It is perfect for a month of high school level literature.

What is in an Online Book Club?

Rabbit Trails

We will go on rabbit trails of discovery. We will hop off the traditional roads of literature studies and meander down paths about pop-culture, history, biographies, poetry, music and more. We will take deep dives into some of the subjects touched on in the in plays and broaden our minds with new adventures.

Magic Dust

We will also bring literature to life by sprinkling a bit of magic dust along the way. These hands-on projects will take us into the plays through science, art, games and more. We will touch, see, feel and learn about the book through the activities.

Play Time!!

The pinnacle of the Shakespeare Book Club experience is the live performance! At the end of each literature study, we will celebrate by attending a theatrical performance. If a performance isn't available in your area, we include options for watching a recorded performance.

Frequently Asked Questions

What ages of children is the book club for?
The plays of Shakespeare have topics and activities that would be appropriate for high school.
What supplies will we need?
You will need the plays of Shakespeare. You can purchase these individually or as a compilation. You will also need Tales from Shakespeare by Charles and Mary Lamb. You may also want a notebook for notes and vocabulary. The project supply list is provided at the beginning of the course. You may choose which projects you will want to do.
What are the dates of the book club?
This is a self-paced course. There are no starting or ending dates. Feel free to use at your leisure.
How long do I have access to the course?
After enrolling, you have unlimited access to this course for as long as you like - across any and all devices you own for the lifetime of Literary Adventures for Kids.
How long should this course take?
The book club is set up on a lesson by lesson basis. It can take as much or as little time as you and your child feel you want to spend. That said, the original design is for a one play per month study. However, I recommend you choose which projects will be a good fit for your child and not feel obligated to complete all lessons.
Can my child work independently?
Yes, this course is designed for children to complete mostly independently. However, there are parent notes throughout for projects and videos. I recommend parents review the course before their children begin.
Can this be used for more than one child or as a family course?
Absolutely! We are a homeschooling family, and we encourage all our children to participate in book clubs. Often we will read the book together as a family read-aloud and then work through the rabbit trails and magic dust together.
Can this be used in a co-op setting?
Yes. Please contact me at [email protected] for information about school and co-op licensing.
What if I have questions or need help?
You can contact me at [email protected] and I will answer you as soon as possible.
What if I am unhappy with the course?
We understand that not every book or course is the perfect fit. Due to the digital nature of this product, we are limited in how long we can offer a refund. If you don't find that the course fits for your family, please let us know within 5 days of purchase for a full refund. After that time, we will not be able to offer a full refund.
