Dear Teaching Colleagues:
Will we see you at NCTE 2019 in Baltimore? We hope so!
Add these 3 things to your conference plans:
- Gain practical strategies, text suggestions, and handouts in our 6 sessions, led by Folger staff in collaboration with amazing teachers from all over the country.
- Learn all about the Folger Method and our upcoming programs for teachers at our buzzing booth (#1018) in the exhibit hall. (Oh, and grab a free Folger Edition of your fave play, too.)
- Have a drink and a bite with us at the Folger Happy Hour on Friday night—and get in on a big public August Wilson-William Shakespeare mashup reading, too!
***Can’t make it to #NCTE19? No worries. We’ll be posting our workshop handouts and reprising some of our sessions (as interactive webcasts) on Forsooth!, our website for Teacher Members of the Folger.***
