Teaching Shakespeare Makes Us Better Readers, Thinkers, and Educators!
I love the Folger Shakespeare Library and its professional development opportunities!
We’re so excited to be offering two opportunities for educators next month that can’t be found anywhere else! Join us for one or both programs to experience performance-based teaching first hand, and join your voice with that of the leader in Shakespeare education in America!
June 1 ($75)
Get Shakespeare’s magical comedy on its feet in your classroom with performance-based teaching techniques made specifically for this whimsical romance. Then see the play come to life in Folger Theatre’s dazzling production! A light breakfast and lunch are provided for this full day of experiencing Shakespeare Set Free for your classroom. Register in the link above!
June 24-26 ($125 until June 3rd)
Join Folger Education to discuss new practices, resources, and more from a host of authors, educators, scholars and students as we explore the fast-growing field of Shakespeare in Elementary Education! Perfect for teachers and teaching artists of K-7 students, ESL/ELL students, or any educator interested in learning more about the practice of performance-based teaching! The conference is full of exciting workshops and discussions – a full list of speakers and a link for online registration can be found in the link above. The Early Bird Registration discount is only available through June 3rd when the cost will increase to $150, so don’t wait!
If you have any questions about these or other Folger Education programs, please don’t hesitate to ask. We’d love to hear from you.
