|The First Folio on exhibit at BSU. |
This artifact has been rebound.
We each chaperoned a bus of students on the trip and allowed some nerdy colleagues and an administrator to tag along on the trip a few weeks ago.
Along the day-long journey a few weeks ago, I snapped some photos of students as they
- traveled on the bus,
- toured the main exhibit,
- participated in a performance activity featuring a cutting from Hamlet, and
- learned about the printing process in Elizabethan England.
