Upcoming Professional Development

Folger Professional Development


The Folger Shakespeare Library offers a range of programs for teachers—online, at the Folger, and in a classroom near you.

Professional Learning Days
Ongoing
At your school!

Led by master teachers in the Folger National Teacher Corps, these one-day workshops provide lively, hands-on practice with techniques that work with all kinds of students in all kinds of classrooms. Through a range of activities rooted in Shakespeare’s language and aligned to national standards, teachers learn how to get students on their feet and into complex texts in minutes. Professional Learning Days draw on the Folger’s unique blend of scholarship, performance, and education, and can be customized to incorporate texts from your school’s curriculum.
