It may seem intimidating, but before you say “no way”, check out these 5 good reasons to teach Shakespeare in your homeschool. I have recently met people from different walks of life and countries. I have met many people from Australia, New Zealand and England. I am from the Bronx, New York, so their speech sounds super proper to me. However, even the most proper “sounding” English, is still “improper” compared to the English language of the 1500s/the Elizabethan era. It’s important to me for kids to be exposed to this type of writing. Great classical literature is a great way to build a lifelong learner.
