NEH Institute Diaries
Submitted by: Amy Ulen
Date: Sunday, August 17, 2003

The institues described on this page were made possible by the National Endowment for the Humanities. The NEH supports the children of this country by helping to provide educational institutes and seminars for teachers. Please help support schools, teachers, and--most of all--children, by writing to the President and your local Congressmen. If the politicians see the wonderful work done by the teachers who attend these institutes, I feel that their skepticism will be replaced by enthusiasm!

During the summer of 1994, thirty teachers from around the United States gathered at Simon's Rock College in Great Barrington, Massachusetts, for an intensive month of studying Shakespeare. When I left for Massachusetts, I had no idea that the adventure I was embarking upon would result in a new enthusiasm for teaching, a desire to enter into the realm of Shakespearean scholarship, personal and professional relationships that will last for a lifetime, and a grant for teaching Shakespeare through performance and technology!
