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

The Folger Shakespeare Library proposes Teaching Shakespeare 2006, 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 Julius Caesar, Macbeth, The Tempest, and the Sonnets 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 to be disseminated in classrooms and through the Teaching Shakespeare Website.
