Teachers from around the state had a good time learning about Shakespeare and how to make his work more accessible to their students during the Shakespeare Set Free Institute: Scholarship, Performance and Pedagogy. The two-day professional development opportunity was held for middle and high school teachers. Much like students, teachers also enjoy learning more when the activities are interactive. This professional development gave them that chance and they had a great time.
