Teacher Professional Development: Reading, Writing, and Speaking with Shakespeare at the Heart

Saturday, April 4, 2020, 9:30am – 1:30pm EDT

What does Shakespeare have to say to us today? And what do today’s artists and readers—especially our students—have to say back to Shakespeare? What might students gain by putting the Bard’s works in conversation with American art? In this lively workshop, we will practice strategies for connecting art and literature in the classroom and helping students understand and interrogate a range of works. How can we dig deeply together to find the relevant heart of complex texts and unlock students’ speaking and writing skills? Folger Shakespeare Library’s Corinne Viglietta will co-facilitate.

Please note: this is for teachers of all grades and subjects.
