"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."
