Please Note: Oxford & Edinburgh Programs are intellectually rigorous, graduate level seminars. Teachers must complete all preparatory reading, attend all seminars and spend considerable time in the library to complete the required reading and research including a final paper of 2,000-3,000 words. The Globe Program is rigorous intellectually and physically. English Literature teachers are strongly encouraged to apply and must currently be full-time, classroom teachers who will be teaching Shakespeare in the upcoming year.
Which program would you like to attend and why? Please check TWO.
*The target participants for Globe Education's Teaching Shakespeare Through Performance (TSTP) course are English Language Arts/Literature teachers. Although participants engage with Shakespeare's work as texts to be performed, and not simply read, TSTP is not an acting program. The course is delivered with the knowledge that English teachers may not have training or experience with performance-based methods of teaching Shakespeare, so will suit anyone who is an inquisitive, adventurous teacher with a passion for Shakespeare and with a willingness to work outside their comfort zone.
Please write a one page personal statement indicating your goals in attending summer school in the United Kingdom. Detail what you hope to gain from the course and how it will affect your teaching. Your statement should give evidence of your qualifications, writing abilities, motivation and adaptability to new circumstances. (Upload as PDF).
Please note: This is a 2 tier application process. Once accepted and awarded a TLab Fellowship by the ESU, the TLab applicant must then apply and be accepted by the British Summer School program. Most ESU TLab scholarship recipients are accepted into their first choice program. However, these programs have limited availability. The Globe is extremely competitive. Final acceptance is determined and notified by the UK institution in Spring 2017, not the ESU.
Please have two professional letters of recommendation ready to submit *if you are selected for an interview* from another faculty member and the principal of your school.Again, you will submit these ONLY if you are selected for an interview.
These applications must be received by Monday, February 6, 2017 to firstname.lastname@example.org.
IF you are awarded an ESU TLab Fellowship by your local ESU Branch, you will then need to complete the British institution's 2017 application form, provide all their required supporting documents for consideration and send by March 1, 2017 to: ESU National Headquarters at TLab@esuus.org or Manager, International Programs, 144 East 39th Street, New York NY 10016.
Please contact Timothy Beresford-Hill, New York TLab Coordinator, at email@example.com with any questions.
