Two regional one-week workshops, serving thirty teachers in Lincoln, Nebraska, and another thirty in the greater Atlanta area, coupling performance-based and primary source approaches to the teaching of two plays of Shakespeare, A Midsummer Night's Dream and Romeo and Juliet.

In the summer of 2008, the Folger Shakespeare Library will organize and offer week-long faculty humanities workshops on Teaching Shakespeare in Lincoln, Nebraska and Greater Atlanta, Georgia. We are coordinating these workshops for secondary school teachers of English, drama, and humanities with local partners, including the University of Nebraska?Lincoln, the Georgia Council of Teachers of English, and Kennesaw State University in Georgia. The 2008 tour allows us to expand the institutes to the Southeastern and Midwest United States?areas where the Folger has had little reach in the past. We ask the National Endowment for the Humanities to consider a grant of $68,845 to support this regional tour of Teaching Shakespeare institutes.
