"Big confession: I took this course for me! I've been wanting to teach my kids about Shakespeare for a long time but I felt completely unequipped to do it until I started Gena's new course: 10 Weeks of Shakespeare ~ Introductory Course for 7th-12th Grades. Although she called it an introductory course I was just blown away by the vast content, awesome videos, and tons of links to get deeper into every module. I always thought a course about Shakespeare could be boring but it is exactly the opposite! This course is very thorough and fascinating. I absolutely recommend it."

"Gena's online course 10 weeks of Shakespeare- Introductory Course for 7th-12th Grades is fantastic! It covers so much in just 10 weeks. It is perfectly laid out and easy to follow. This course provides great content, awesome videos and informative links that make learning about Shakespeare enjoyable rather than complicated. I also LOVE that it can be adjusted to teach grades K-6. I definitely recommend this course!"
