Subject: 	Shakespeare Sitcom Question

Dear Colleagues,

I'm passing this note along from Richard Paul, who is working closely 
with us on a radio documentary:

I am a producer working with the Folger Shakespeare Library on three 
hours of public radio documentaries about Shakespeare in America.

One section will look at Shakespeare in American education and for this 
section, we are looking for opportunities to "illustrate" points in the 
way one does in a radio documentary.

To that end, does anyone on the list know any instances on sitcoms where 
students were shown to be studying Shakespeare? I'm asking about sitcoms 
from any era. Does anyone on the list remember ever seeing an episode of 
any sitcom when students were shown studying Shakespeare in class?

Thanks for whatever you can tell me.
Richard L. Paul,
