Folger Education offers a variety of professional development opportunities for teachers across town or across the country. In addition to developing Webinars open to national participants, the Folger offers day-long Shakespeare Set Free workshops and two-day Mini-Institutes.
The Teaching Shakespeare Institute and Elementary Education Conference invite educators from across the country to participate in educational development at the Folger. TSI participants enjoy a four-week stay at the Folger approaching Shakespeare from the perspective of a scholar, actor and educator. The Elementary Education Conference invites K-5 educators to apply performance-based teaching to their younger students, and share their classroom experience.
Educators local to Washington, DC may be interested in our several workshops throughout the school year. From preparing for a Festival performance, to sonnet studies, to Shakespeare on the Web, local teachers can experience teaching Shakespeare in a new light at the Folger. Registration for these is available in "DC Workshops" on the left.
