Agnes Scott College educates women to think deeply, live honorably, and engage in the intellectual and social challenges of their times. Since 1889, Agnes Scott College has empowered students to fulfill their potential through an innovative liberal arts education. This summer, Agnes Scott is offering a residential program called “Shakespeare and Digital Storytelling,” a two-week summer institute for twenty-five English teachers of grades 9-12, sponsored by the National Endowment for the Humanities (NEH). Taught by an interdisciplinary team of scholars, artists, and educators, the Institute will guide participants in studying A Midsummer Night’s Dream, Hamlet, and The Taming of the Shrew, exploring the plays’ folk and fairy tales roots, as well as 21st-century approaches to teaching Shakespeare, including digital storytelling (DST).
