Offered to a national group of 25 middle and high school teachers, the Institute introduces a carefully integrated approach for exploring text-based scholarship, contextual and original source material, language, and performance in three Shakespeare plays. This year's participants will study MUCH ADO ABOUT NOTHING, MEASURE FOR MEASURE and OTHELLO under the guidance of leading Shakespeare scholars Julie Crawford (Columbia University) and Mario DiGangi (Lehman College and the Graduate Center, City University of New York), and master teaching artists and theatre practitioners Krista Apple and Claudia Zelevansky.
