There will be refreshments and a "materials exchange" from 5:30 - 6:30, and

MATERIALS EXCHANGE:
Symposium participants will be encouraged to meet in small groups to develop
new local networks of teachers, scholars, and theatre artists working with
Shakespeare's plays in classrooms, in research libraries, and on stages in
the New York metropolitan area.  Participants are invited to bring multiple
copies of Shakespearean teaching materials to share with others during the
refreshments break.
 
THE SHAKESPEARE INSTITUTE is part of CASTA--Center for Advanced Study in
Theatre Arts at the CUNY Graduate Center.  It promotes research on
Shakespearean teaching, performance, and scholarship.  At this year's
conference, teachers, theatre artists, and research professors who design
classroom activities will come together to offer ideas about teaching
Shakespeare.  Elementary schools, secondary schools, colleges and
universities, acting conservatories and professional acting companies foster
engaging ways of working on these plays, whether through performances,
festivals, or programs in the classroom.
 
In our various roles as teachers, we all have much to learn and much to offer.
The Shakespeare Institute responds to the need for communicating innovative
ideas by offering a forum for pedagogical exchange and encouragement.
