Subject: 	Shakespeare goes to high school

Colleagues:

Does anyone have answers to these questions?

1. When did Shakespeare's plays first enter the high school English 
curriculum in the United States? In other countries?

2. What plays were taught in those early years?  Why were they added to 
the curriculum?

3. When were Shakespeare films first used in high school classrooms?

4. Which films were shown?

5. Is the teaching of any specific play mandated by any state or nation?

Any help with the above would be appreciated.

Best,
Mike
