Hi, Irene! A few weeks ago, at teachers' requests, we started play-specific Zooms. Maryam's organizing that whole plan, so I'll let her jump in!

When we multitask, we do nothing well...

Exciting: One of my students wrote and recorded an AMAZING and powerful speech…and submitted it early! He normally turns in work late or not at all.

Connecting: interfacing with students can be as unpredictable as our internet connectivity. They are often outside their comfort zone, with some positive results and also some genuine concerns.

do you find that students call in during “office hours” more to talk than to ask for help?
Jack Bathke
43:13
Wow. Improvisation is such a great way to look at it. Especially considering the two rules of improv: “yes, and” and “heighten and explore”
Victoria Savage
45:10
Yes! Providing these resources have saved the “Macbeth” portion of my course!
Laurie Simpson

I was so happy to share Folger Method Express Hamlet with my colleague who teachers seniors. She was thrilled!

Let's see if it's not too late. Maryam?
Melissa Minjares

Thinking ahead for next fall -- it is likely that many of us will be teaching "remotely" again for at least some of the time. It would be helpful to have some additional resources to help apply the Folger method to many of the other texts we will find ourselves moving through. AND to HELP SPREAD the Folger Method and its Foundational Principles.

I really like the concept of reimagine, Shannon
Marsha Arons

The combination of thoughtful people who love literature AND are committed to doing what's best for students -- putting student learning first -- is balm to my soul each week.

I’ve noticed the positivity in these Zoom meetings. The willingness to learn and build off each other makes it such the climate welcoming and fun :)

Tori Savage

I’m so focused on multimodal / experiential learning in the classroom that this has been very trying, but also inspiring
Jack Bathke
01:03:07
I adore the Folger Method. I’m known as the Folger teacher at Princeton. But besides that, I find myself looking at the structure of these meetings as a way to structure my meetings with my classes. It’s a new way of lesson planning
M s

Yes, Melissa and Jess!
