Joy Docherty
32:28
hello hello! I’m hoping a colleague is new/joining us tonight!
Gina Perry
32:34
I've been using the books and Shakespeare set free since I started teaching in 2003. New member as of last month.
Jennifer Ehlers
32:37
Folger is the BEST! Huzzah!
Nancy Rafalko
32:38
Subscriber for second year. I’m in a different time zone (China): it’s 7 a.m. here. Hello!
Elizabeth Marmion
32:41
Hello! I was introduced to Folger through my district at staff development days and have been using the materials with fervor ever since!
Jori Krulder
32:47
Hello, Jori here from Northern CA. I teach English 10, 11, and AP Lit at Paradise HIgh
Corinne Viglietta
33:13
Hi, everyone. We're so glad to see your faces and hear your voices.
Anne Blaney
33:16
Hi all! Happy to find another community help keep me sane and grounded and even teaching Shakespeare in this wacky time!
Nancy Wilder
33:20
I know the Folger through NCTE. Thank you SO MUCH for the many resources that you are providing for us during this difficult time. I appreciate all that you’re doing for the students and teachers.
Susan Corby
33:21
I "went to college" with Michael Ellis-Tolaydo, so I've been low-key stalking the Folger ever since I found out he was associated with them!
Larry Reiff
33:29
So happy to be here with all of you!
Vicki Casarett
33:37
Vicki; Rochester NY; I've been a fan of Folger for years
Jori Krulder
33:54
I’ve heard some great things about the Folger workshop from Susan Barber.
Heather Richey
34:23
I need a haircut, AND I’m lying in my bed exhausted after a day of zooming with freshmen!
Laurie Simpson
34:24
For some reason, my video won't work right now, but I do need my roots done!
Stacy Nobriga
35:26
First time hearing of Folger!!!
Hilary Gansauer
36:02
I’ve been following through the website an emails for years. Haven’t done a program, but would love to one day!
Margaret Webster
36:33
Perfect timing. I am starting Macbeth next week. :)
Antoinette Davis
36:37
Is anyone doing Othello?
Laurie Simpson
37:02
Where do I sign up for a play-specific group?
Larry Reiff
37:03
Being locked inside has allowed me to catch up on lots of Shakespeare adaptations. Anyone see Michael Fassbender in Macbeth on Amazon Prime?
CARA SULTANY
37:05
May we still sign up for a play group?
Yonnie Palmer
37:10
Can we still pick a play?
Stephanie Pease
37:19
Can I sign up for 2 plays?
Corinne Viglietta
37:23
Hi, Antoinette! Check out our whole DC Public Schools unit on Othello and American Moor. It's on Folger's Teaching During COVID-19 page.
Margaret Webster
37:35
Yes, to Fassbender in Macbeth
Antoinette Davis
37:41
Thank you Corinne!
Corinne Viglietta
37:59
No problem. If you have any questions, Antoinette, just shoot me an email. cviglietta@folger.edu
Sherry Saylors
38:11
I've been a Folger unofficial teacher for years. I teach in a community college and have used the Folger techniques in various writing courses for several years. I'm developing a unit for our developmental course, EGL0080 and want to combine the Folger method with writing techniques and grammar methods. We will be using Midsummer Night's Dream. I want to register for the group!
Antoinette Davis
38:41
Thank you Corinne, will do!
Brittany Kelley
39:39
That sounds like a great course, Sherry! I also teach writing classes at a community college and I'd love to explore incorporating Shakespeare & the Folger method in those classes.
Jori Krulder
43:32
I’m excited to get ideas for how to engage my students in Macbeth online. It is usually my favorite time of the year - and theirs as well, because I use the Folger method. I’d love to translate this online.
Margaret Webster
43:55
Ditto to Jori’s comment
Susan Brodsky
43:55
Ditto to Jori Krulder
Anne Blaney
44:49
Love my flier!
Peggy O'Brien
48:15
Folger Method Express includes those juicy scenes and more—very fab and useful.
Larry Reiff
49:43
Who teaches all of Hamlet ever?
Joy Docherty
49:53
@Larry haha!
Laurie Simpson
49:56
The time issue is sometimes less about the whole story but about the time it takes for the kids to unpack the language in its context enough to understand.
Cynthia Bader
50:00
:-D :-D :-D
Susan Brodsky
50:09
I read R & J method express. Cannot wait for the Macbeth one. Created a lesson this week from the image/hashtag idea. Ty!
Noelle Patel
50:28
please post paired texts!
Yonnie Palmer
51:12
I can't wait for Macbeth. I do not know this method… interesting
Peggy O'Brien
52:03
oh welcome, so happy to have you!
Megan Pankiewicz
52:34
To Laurie's point: last year I taught Macbeth by showing the whole play but reading only the key passages with Macbeth and Lady Macbeth. It was great because we didn't get caught up in translating every line, but they understood what was happening because of the visual experience.
Gina Perry
52:38
As far as equity, I started reading Shakespeare at 6 yrs, old, and fell in love with the language. It was a part of my families Great Books collection and devoured his work. Yes, I am complete nerd!
Peggy O'Brien
53:10
Big nerd love here, Gina!
Joy Docherty
53:29
Gina- I need to tell you the story of how I fell in love w/ Shakespeare at 9 w/out even knowing it! (12th Night will always hold a special place in my heart)
Elizabeth Schmitt
53:57
@Gina I saw my first Shakespeare at 6!
Christine Shugrue
54:16
Maybe number 5 is the best one ..no no maybe number 7..or 8 ….ok it might be number 6 …clearly it is number 1 ..wait every single one of these is great for teaching any piece of literature
Laurie Simpson
55:29
Is it true that Shakespeare wrote King Lear while quarantined during the plague? (Saw a FB meme)
Todd Cherches
55:34
I was first introduced to Shakespeare as a kid from the Felix Unger (Tony Randall) character on 1970s tv show, "The Odd Couple"! I remember him always saying, "The fault lies not in our stars...but in ourselves."

yes its a joke
Susan Brodsky

Heather Richey
01:00:20
We can ALL relate...
Liz Campbell
01:00:23
Is there a reference site or something that explains the Folger Method? I’m not familiar with it either, and I’d love to share as much as possible with my colleagues, who can’t attend these meetings.
Cynthia Bader
01:00:25
None of us has EVER had a Zoom glitch during a class recently!
Barbara Helfrick
01:00:32
yes!
Edmund McCarthy
01:00:47
So quick do bright things come to confusion
Laurie Simpson
01:00:52
High school teachers in a 1:1 district. Are your students' Chromebook cameras disabled?
Jennifer Ehlers
01:00:53
My district banned Zoom!
Elizabeth Schmitt
01:00:54
it's like Julia CHild's cooking shows
Nancy Rafalko
01:00:57
I’m usually cut off more often :)))
Vicki Casarett
01:01:09
My kids would jump in to solve the problem.
Larry Reiff
01:01:13
We forget that Internet backbones are totally strained by the current crisis. Its not uncommon for bandwidth issues to derail the best laid plans
Corinne Viglietta

Yay! Peggy's back!
Jori Krulder

Excellent time fillling
Laurie Simpson

01:08:32
but which column?
Noelle Patel
01:08:34
I am lame but I can’t do this where I’m at 😫 I can only listen
Corinne Viglietta
01:08:48
Totally fine.
Jori Krulder
01:09:01
The delay is indeed a challenge
Jori Krulder
01:09:14
I need to figure out how to factor this in
Noelle Cammon
01:09:43
I think the delay brings something. Not sure what.
Corinne Viglietta
01:09:51
I think the delay is OK because this is about the process, not the product. Let's see what happens next.
Jessica Zeiss
01:10:04
Honestly … it’s kind of how it sounds if they were to do it in the classroom anyway :) haha
Victoria Bonutti
01:10:14
Shows students/participants it doesn't have to be perfect - that it's ok to take risks and make mistakes.
Cynthia Bader
01:10:15
Jessica; True!
Laura Turchi
01:10:23
This is a room of confident readers… and the delay is definitely weird. Okay, shadow speakers. Interesting.
Lisel Gorell-Getz
01:10:50
I find myself listening for and "following" the stronger voices when I speak - trying match them
Victoria Bonutti
01:11:02
Which is what students do :)
Yonnie Palmer
01:11:37
sept oct pretty good
Jori Krulder
01:11:38
I like that idea, Victoria, about it giving them permission not to be perfect
Victoria Bonutti
01:12:12
There's also no time to indulge the temptation to correct pronunciations/readings.
Cynthia Bader
01:12:26
Victoria: Good point.
Laura Turchi
01:12:31
I’ve seen productions that use voices like this to show internal speech (or madness). Like all the bad feeling between Capulets and Montagues - their interior fight-picking.
Corinne Viglietta
01:13:50
The permission not to be perfect is the whole idea! We don't correct pronunciation because student ownership and confidence are the goals. Students end up figuring out stuff on their own.
Jeannette Carmody
01:15:44
Safe way to speak as your voice is there, but not isolatead
Christopher Reichow
01:16:02
Spoken voice...
Christina D'Emma
01:16:09
It lowers inhibitions about pronunciation when everyone is reading at once
Sheri Goldstein
01:16:12
I noticed the repetition more with this technique
Cynthia Bader
01:16:19
Ooh. True re. lowering inhibitions.
Laurie Simpson
01:16:30
We love this. Most of my students would foxhole.
Margit Look Henry
01:16:31
I loved that we read it multiple times and I am beginning to develop my voice with this speech
Cynthia Bader
01:16:45
Margit: Yes.
Margit Look Henry
01:17:07
Breaking it up into sections multiple times also let me see where the ideas shift
Margit Look Henry
01:17:15
chunking!
Laurie Simpson
01:17:17
But maybe we're assume they are reading it at home with their mic off.
Elizabeth Marmion
01:17:29
How do you choose which section/scene to read chorally? I'd think a prologue might work?
Edmund McCarthy
01:17:35
We maximized the vocalization of the lines alongside the hearing of the verse -- while being psychologically safe taking risks.
Vidula Plante
01:17:49
The reps are embedded!
Christina D'Emma
01:18:15
Yes it’s great with the prologue R&J
Stefanie Jochman
01:18:16
Pieces that are great for choral reading: speeches! Listen for multiple “voices”
Stefanie Jochman
01:19:38
Or…wow…find the passage that changes you when you read it aloud. Like this one.
Margit Look Henry
01:20:02
not sure why the text is too big
Jori Krulder
01:20:07
I’ve been watching College Behind Bars - the Ken Burns documentary on Netflix - this is a huge idea in it
Elizabeth Schmitt
01:20:22
minimize your screen
Margaret Webster
01:21:31
That worked really well with the Malcolm X excerpt
Erika Phillips
01:22:14
I teach Shakespeare in prison and this is hitting home.
Noelle Cammon
01:22:18
I would record this!
Noelle Cammon
01:22:23
This is awesome!
Susan Brodsky
01:23:00
the meaning truly emerges
M s
01:23:03
Can we get this recorded? Maybe you are, but i don't see the "REC"
Corinne Viglietta
01:23:16
This is being recorded. Yes!
Sheri Goldstein
01:23:19
I notice the terseness of some sentences.
Susan Brodsky
01:23:21
power of repetition
Cynthia Bader
01:23:26
Corinne: I see the red record button "lit up".
Folger Education
01:23:50
This is being recorded and will be available on Thursday evening.
Corinne Viglietta
01:24:03
We'll post to our website on Friday. Thanks so much for your thoughtful observations and insights. This is amazing to experience with you all.
Susan Brodsky
01:24:12
the echo reiterates the power of certain words
Edmund McCarthy
01:24:20
A lot of voltas in the passage -- a lot of buts that forced me to take a turn in tone. Very cool. Consider it stolen.
Laurie Simpson
01:24:33
I could use this even when studying mentor texts for writing pieces unrelated to Shakespeare.
Christina D'Emma
01:24:36
Will you explain this pairing: Midsummer and Malcolm
Shannon Johnson
01:24:55
Thank you for using a non-Shakespeare text. A great reminder that this method works for all types of texts.
Cynthia Bader
01:25:04
Shannon: Amen.
Susan Brodsky
01:25:10
never saw the birthday breakdown before
Corinne Viglietta
01:25:14
I think it's not a thematic pairing-- I think Peggy's having us practice the strategy. But ask!
Susan Brodsky
01:25:16
fun way to stay focuses
Edmund McCarthy
01:25:18
Great point re masks.
Christina D'Emma
01:25:33
ok thanks:)
Drew Snow
01:26:06
What a great way to break down huge chunks of texts into manageable units of thoughts. Moving from the huge chunk, to the birthday chunks to half and half chunks. I think of the Nurse speeches from Romeo and Juliet that students typically skip over because they are huge chunks.
Corinne Viglietta
01:26:07
The idea is that this is a technique that gets at those 8 principles, those 8 big things that matter
Susan Brodsky
01:26:18
yes, Peggy, that is what I have done.
Corinne Viglietta
01:26:21
Oooh! Some great ideas out here!
Jori Krulder
01:26:58
I have to jump out - hosting a staff book club meeting. Thank you , this was wonderful! I love experimenting :)
Cynthia Bader
01:27:06
Drew: And the nurse has some great moments!
Folger Education

Yonnie Palmer

Madonna Green

Gina Perry
01:27:38
loved it, please let's work on it.
Susan Brodsky
01:27:44
great idea to turn aroud
Vicki Casarett
01:27:44
yes
Kate Maurer
01:27:48
Any hope for doing this asynchronously?
Stefanie Jochman
01:27:49
We could all use some moments to shout together—this is a chance!
Drew Snow
01:27:50
Cynthia: I agree.
Elaine Fippin
01:27:56
architect and amplify the voice
Margit Look Henry
01:27:59
just audio is great
Laurie Simpson
01:28:01
Thank you so much! I have so many ideas!
Vicki Casarett
01:28:10
Ultimately, do you want individuals to hear each other enough to come together?
greta brasgalla
01:28:10
asynchronous with Flipgrid?
Elaine Fippin
01:28:18
I feel energized!!!
Jessica Zeiss
01:28:19
Does anybody know if Google Meet also has delay that zoom does?
Cynthia Bader
01:28:23
Ooh! FlipGrid! What an idea!
Christina D'Emma
01:28:31
back to back is a good idea—kind of like how we can’t always see students online
Margit Look Henry
01:28:38
I would try it with and without the video for students to notice how they are listening to each other
Sherry Saylors
01:28:44
This method works! I imagined myself as surfing on the waves of the other voices, and then I fell into the water! We were all together.
Megan Pankiewicz
01:28:46
What if kids made a Tik Tok video where they "throw" the lines at each other? I've seen athletes do this with passing balls, I think it might work for Shakespeare's words too!
Vidula Plante
01:28:51
Google Meet doesn' have as much delay...but I like the delay!
greta brasgalla
01:28:59
OMG the tik tok!! yes do it!
Folger Education
01:29:10
Megan: Having kids use TikTok would be AMAZING!
Margit Look Henry
01:29:14
You could pass the lines on Flip Grid with a tossing motion on the video!
Megan Pankiewicz
01:29:16
:)
M s
01:29:23
Megan, try it! What's to lose!
Laurie Simpson
01:29:32
Yes! TikTok or Flipgrid toss videos!
greta brasgalla
01:29:34
there is also an easy video editing app the kids are using for that passing the ball type things..
Antoinette Davis
