A four-week institute for twenty-five school teachers to examine Shakespeare's plays.

Folger Shakespeare Library proposes Teaching Shakespeare 2012, a four-week summer institute for secondary school teachers. A group of 25 participants, working with a faculty of resident and visiting scholars, resident actors, and curriculum consultants, will undertake an intensive examination of PERICLES, THE COMEDY OF ERRORS, THE MERCHANT OF VENICE, and OTHELLO from the mutually illuminating perspectives of reading the texts closely, examining primary sources to reconstruct historical and cultural contexts, exploring the filmed versions and performance histories of the plays, and exploring performance possibilities. Participants will collaborate on new teaching strategies incorporating technology to be disseminated in classrooms and through the Folger website.
