TEACHER TALKS

Since our classrooms went remote last spring, our free online Teacher Talks continue to offer a space for teachers to come together, share their success stories, challenges, and resources with their fellow educators. We invite you to join us for our monthly Teacher Talks for this fall semester, a time for you to be in conversation with other teachers, gain insight and inspiration for your classroom, your students, and yourself. Each month, you can plan to learn a new remote-accessible activity and have time to ask the developing experts in this field of virtual learning—your peers—for input and advice. Our “classroom” is the Zoom room, and we’ll send registered participants a link the day before.

TEACHER WORKSHOPS

All classroom teachers—including teachers-in-training—are invited to our free online Teacher Workshops! Our workshops have gone online—and like their precursors, will provide you with the tools you need to help your students crack open complex texts. We’ll be tipping our hat to our new remote classrooms—and their possibilities of play. And we’ll take a hard look at Shakespeare in the colonies, in the canon, in the curriculum—and in our classrooms. Register now for our first for the 2020/21 school year!
